From Milngavie on the outskirts of Glasgow, the West Highland Way winds through some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain to the foot of Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, at Fort William.
Starting in the lowlands, the West Highland Way passes through woodland and rolling farmland to Loch Lomond and then follows its shores to the village of Inverarnan at the head of the Loch. Beyond Inverarnan the trail runs up Glen Falloch past a succession of dramatic cascades and the village of Crianlarich to the Bridge of Orchy. It visits Loch Tulla and then crosses the bleak expanses of Rannoch Moor to the shelter of the Kingshouse Hotel. Continuing past mighty Buachaille Etive Mor, which guards the entrance to Glencoe, the West Highland Way climbs the 'Devil's Staircase', which provides magnificent mountain views, before descending to the village of Kinlochleven at the head of Loch Leven. The final stage of this spectacular trail crosses the Lairigmor pass to Glen Nevis and the busy little town of Fort William, with glorious views of Loch Leven, the pinnacled ridge of the Aonach Eagach and the vast bulk of Ben Nevis.
