We took seven days to do the West Highland Way, taking the easy route of staying in inns and having our luggage transferred. Somehow we thought going in that a 96 mile hike wouldn't be that hard - we're in great shape. But we had...More
Although our vacation schedule did not allow us the opportunity to hike the entire West Highland Way, we did hike the last three sections, from Bridge of Orchy to Fort William. And while the weather might not have been to everyone's taste (rainy, windy and...More
Just done the Drymen to Inverarnan stretch of the West Highland Way over three days. Thoroughly enjoyed it, though the Inversnaid - Inverarnan stretch was exacting especially with the weather we encountered! Glad there were no midgies. The accommodation was fine and all would provide...More

5 girlfriends and I just completed the West Highland Way, booked with Thistle Trekking. Can’t recommend them enough, the trip was well coordinated from start to finish. Very well trained/certified mountain guides and excellent van support.
This was my first time joining a group tour...More

We (2 couples in our mid-60s) just completed the West Highland Way. We chose the 8 day option and took a rest day in Tyndrum. On our rest day we took the train to Oban; it was the perfect way to rest our feet and...More
Their drivers are dangerous and drive with a complete disregards for either the Highway Code or basic road safety. Undertaking other cars on the M8 motorway at speeds well in excess of 70mph is stupid and dangerous. Travel by train, its safer and you will...More
We walked the WHW as a family with 2 older teenagers in 6 days which was challenging for all. I am not a brave outdoor type. Some of the days were over 20 miles long and I found a few short cuts to help me...More
Hi. It is certainly possible but it depends on the weather, which might be bad in the higher Glens. But there again, if the autumn is good, it might be glorious. Higher risk of bad weather is the main problem and there are... More
Hi. It is certainly possible but it depends on the weather, which might be bad in the higher Glens. But there again, if the autumn is good, it might be glorious. Higher risk of bad weather is the main problem and there are stretches of really isolated locations far from roads etc, especially on Rannock Moor. I would only recommend doing it alone if you are used to doing so. A group would be better, especially if you like company. There are plenty of accommodation options en route. Solo would not be my first choice, although there were singletons when we did it. Good luck and enjoy!
