The West Highland Way is the first and most famous of Scotland's long-distance walks. It stretches for 95 miles (152 km) of superb scenery, from the outskirts of Glasgow, Scotland's largest city, through its first National Park, along the shores of its largest loch, ending in Fort William, at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain.

This 2008 edition of our popular guidebook was fully revised after a further end-to-end walk in August 2007, with updated content, more photographs and revised Fort William town plan. It contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday:

drop-down route map in six panels (1:100,000)
waterproof paper throughout
the Way in sections, with summaries of distance, terrain and where to find food and drink
concise background on the history and wildlife
information about side-trips, e.g. Ben Lomond and Ben Nevis
planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane
in full colour, with 70 photographs.
