West Highland Way: The Best moments of 2018

14 Sep , 2018  

Scotland’s favourite hiking trail, the West Highland Way, is a 96 mile adventure on foot from the edge of Glasgow’s urban sprawl into the wild Highlands, and onward to the west coast of Scotland in Fort William.

Each year we organise 1000s of walkers’ trips on the West Highland Way, and encourage our hikers to share their favourite moments with our community of adventurous spirits using #MacsMoment.

These are some of our favourites, summing up the West Highland Way experience in special memories and inspiring moments.

Views!

In any weather, the scenery is what draws people from the world over to this part of Scotland.

West Highland Way, stage 7: Kingshouse – Kinlochleven. A stage with dramatic scenery! Along the Buachaille Etive Mòr (on the photo), climbing the Devil’s Staircase and a sneak preview on Ben Nevis. It was a short stage, but after 6 stages, this one I felt in the legs and mentally too. The Buachaille Etive Mòr is the most photographed spot in Scotland andere I think I don’t have to explain why. . . . . . #westhighlandway #scotland #scotlandexplore #thisisscotland #scotlandsbeauty #scotch #scotlandshots #scotlandlover #scotlandtrip #scotland_insta #scotland2018 #scotland_greatshots #scotlandsites #westhighland #whw #igersscotland #igersscots #ig_scotland #ig_scot #uk #buachailleetivemor #unitedkingdom #munro #kinlochleven #scottishhighlands #bonnyscotland #bonniescotland #bonnie #ecosse #macsmoment

Moments with Friends

Whilst a walking adventure is the ideal way to spend some solo time in the peace of nature, bringing friends & loved ones (or even making friends) is a great way to share time and experiences. Even the Macs Adventure team enjoy time together on the trail (in this case with more than a little rain thrown in too) when we can!

Light & Mood

So the sun may not always shine on the Scottish Highlands, but that doesn’t matter. Part of what makes the landscape so interesting is how the scenery changes in different lights and weathers, even changing minute by minute sometimes!

West Highland Way, stage 3: Rowardennan – Inverarnan. Today was magical. A lot of rain in the afternoon, and what a mythical route I have accomplished today! The path went up and down, up and down, along Loch Lomond with tons of waterfalls, rocks, and slippery paths. Tomorrow will be a bit dryer hopefully, but as beautiful and unforgettable as today. . . . . . #westhighlandway #scotland #traveladdict #ecosse #macsmoment #scotlandsbeauty #bonniescotland #scotlandshots #scotlandlover #scotlandtrip #scotland_insta #scotland2018 #scotland_greatshots #scottishsummer #inverarnan #hiking #adventureculture #panoramic #traveljunkie #travelgram #westhighland #trekking #whw #igersscotland #igersscots #ig_scotland #ig_scot #uk #unitedkingdom #lochlomond

All Good Things Must Come To An End

Any sorrow that the adventure is over is more than made up for in the sense of achievement! Don’t forget the obligatory snap with the “sore feet” statue at the end of the West Highland Way.

I have been a member of the Macs Adventure team since March 2013, and since joining my travel wish-list has developed ten-fold! Glasgow is my home, and a wonderful city to live in, however I love nothing more than enjoying the access to the Scottish countryside on my doorstep.
