Discover the southern half of Scotland's most famous long distance trail - the West Highland Way. Explore the lush glens and rich woodlands of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park as you follow the trail north from Milngavie to Inverarnan.

Towering mountains, tranquil lochs and rushing rivers combine to reward you with a unique and ever-changing landscape as you journey 47 miles from Milngavie (Glasgow) to Inverarnan (just under halfway to Fort William). Pass by whisky distilleries and the charming rural villages of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, with spectacular views over and alongside the bonnie waters. This really is Scottish highland scenery at its best.
