Comments about West Highland Way Walking Holiday :
My boyfriend and I decided to be brave and opted for the 5 day option – it was our first long-distance walk and we were warned by Macs that it would be tough going!!!The first day was 19 miles and was pretty easy going. Day 2 (21 miles) was tougher with aching limbs from day 1! we finally arrived at the Drovers Inn at 10pm after speed walking for 2 hours in the dark along the very very rocky side of loch lomond. The Drovers Inn couldn’t have been more helpful – they let us order food and showed us to our rooms and then came over to get us when the food was ready – couldn’t have asked for more!!! We walked for 14 miles on day 3, but were sneaky and when a bus passed us in tyndrum we couldn’t resist jumping on, the thought of another night walking in the dark wasn’t appealing, we then arrived at the beautiful bridge of orchy hotel, which was our only accomodation en route with a bath – much appreciated!! the last two days were uneventful with pleasant walking conditions.All in all and exhausting,but excellent holiday which left us wanting for more.Macs were amazing, we booked only a few days before our trip, but it all ran like clockwork,[...]

Founder and Chief Adventure Officer of Macs Adventure. With a passion for adventure and active travel, I firmly believe that the very best way to discover a country, its landscape, culture and people is under your own steam. I have travelled extensively in Southern and East Africa, Australasia, Europe and Asia and spend my time walking, climbing, mountain biking and kite-surfing in Scotland and around the world. I love living in Glasgow with my wife, son and daughter, although I am trying unsuccessfully to convince them to move closer to my favourite kite surfing spot in Troon.
