The West Highland Way is one of the finest of Britain's long-distance paths. It passes through six separate mountain ranges, from the tall elegant cone of Ben Lomond and the crag towers of grim Glen Coe to the seductive Mamores. But it doesn't go onto those enticing Stobs and Bens. NOT The West Highland Way makes the most of the surrounding area, taking in sights that the linear Way doesn't allow. With mountain alternatives to all but one of the West Highland Way's nine standard stages, this guidebook takes you on a higher and wilder journey. By taking the best of what the standard Way has to offer and adding in all its diversions away from the linear paths, and get to the heart of what makes the West Highland Way so great. It crosses Ben Lomond and Beinn Dorain, the charming Campsie Fells and the mighty Mamores, while the crossing of the Black Mount from Inveroran to Glen Coe represents the best pub-to-pub to be found in Britain.

A guidebook to Scotland's West Highland Way, a 95-mile walk from Milngavie near Glasgow to Fort William, passing Loch Lomond, crossing Rannoch Moor and finishing in the shadow of Britain's highest mountain. The walk, which takes roughly one week to complete, is described in seven stages, with each stage ranging from 8 to 20 miles. The guide details the 'classic' south-north direction but also provides a summary description for those wanting to walk the route in the opposite direction. The guidebook, which features step-by-step route descriptions, 1:100K mapping, handy practical information as well as notes on the region's history, culture and geography, is accompanied by a separate, pocket-sized 1:25K OS map booklet, providing all the mapping you need to walk the route. Passing from the lowlands to the highlands, the West Highland Way, which is one of Scotland's Great Trails, showcases the splendour of glens flanked by great mountains, majestic moorland and sprawling farmland. It is the perfect adventure for distance walkers keen to discover the wild beauty of western Scotland.

Sonja: I walked the West Highland Way with my daughter Maria. It led us along small country roads, wide forest roads and old military roads, along small streams, along paths through heather and pastures to our destination at Fort William. The course required a certain endurance and fitness, but always rewarded us with a breath-taking landscape. Maria: I walked the West Highland Way with my mother. While we enjoyed some hours of sunshine, we often had to walk in drizzle or heavy rain, over hill and dale, through mist and, at times, in very humid air. After 10 days we arrived, satisfied and happy, in sunshine in Fort William.

The 93-mile West Highland Way is indisputably Britain's most spectacular long-distance path. The first section, following the eastern shore of Loch Lomond, offers an idyllic waterside walk, with the full grandeur of the Highlands gradually revealing itself. Then, after crossing the barren wilderness of the Rannoch Moor, the walker climbs the Devil's Staircase above Glencoe and traverses classic Highland landscapes to reach Fort William and, if he or she wishes, a grand finale at the peak of Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis. This comprehensive, easy-to-use guide is an authoritative companion, packed with indispensable information.
