The West Highland Way, which is one of 'Scotland's Great Trails', travels 96 miles through sublime scenery, from the outskirts of Glasgow to Fort William. In between, there are countless magnificent mountains, exquisite glens, shimmering lochs and seemingly endless miles of purple heather to experience. The trekker negotiates this wonderfully unpopulated terrain on a meticulously waymarked series of paths and tracks, many of which are old military roads or drovers' paths, built many centuries ago. In this part of the Highlands, you are far away from the region's urban centres. Occasionally, you will meet a road or pass through a small village or hamlet (with little more than a local pub and a few places to stay) but otherwise, the experience is one of tranquillity. This is the Scottish Highlands at their best and it will be an adventure that you will never forget.
