Three days of excellent walking along the world famous West Highland Way. Best described as Scotland’s finest long distance walk, the West Highland Way takes you through some of the country's finest scenery. With this short break, we have focused on arguably the most scenic part of the walk, from Bridge of Orchy to Fort William. This short break allows you to drink in the peaceful wilderness of the Rannoch Moor and Glen Nevis leaving you refreshed and invigorated. Starting at Bridge of Orchy, you are immediately immersed in the refreshing highland air, the peace of the area flooding through you. Starting off at Bridge of Orchy means that you are already walking in the Highlands and your first day is spent crossing the remote Rannoch Moor on your way to the Kingshouse Hotel. From here your trip takes you to Kinlochleven via the ’Devils Staircase’ surrounded by the stunning mountain scenery before your final day's walk into the vibrant town of Fort William. Macs Adventure has been operating self guided walking holidays on the West Highland Way since 2003. Based locally, just a few miles from the start of the West Highland Way, we literally know every step of the way. As the largest operator on the West Highland Way, we can secure you the best value and quality accommodation, baggage transfer and services, regardless of whether you are walking solo or as a group of 20. So give us a shout today to start planning your adventure.

  • West Highland Way Video Diary

    Dan, our resident wildlife expert, took to the West Highland Way and recorded his whole journey.  This video shows you the full route, from the starting point in Milngavie, through all the points of interest, to the finish in Fort William.  Dan points out some interesting things along the route that you shouldnt miss, but this is not a video laden with spoilers.  Every journey on the West Highland Way is different, dictated by the weather, the people you meet and the chance encounters with wildlife (human and otherwise!) Get a taste of what is in store on the West Highland Way with Dan.
