Long Distance Route in Scotland
The West Highland Way is a convenient walk for the beginning hiker and a good launch point for the Scottish Highlands. This walk, 153 km, 95 miles, can be done in a short weeks time. You do not really venture out into the higher and wilder parts of Scotland, except for the crossing of a pass. You do get however a multifaceted view of Scotland. From the green forests of Loch Lomond near Glasgow, along an old military road, over the Devil's Staircase, you will eventually view of the highest mountain in the United Kingdom, Ben Nevis.
In Fort William, the end of the West Highland Way, starts another popular hike, namely the Great Glen Way, along Loch Ness. Or – better option? – go for a climb to the summit of one of the many Munros (a mountain of more than 3000 feet) and enjoy wild green Scotland from above. Assuming you choose a fine day, you will not regret this.
