Cicerone - NOT The West Highland Way
The West Highland Way is one of the finest of Britain’s long-distance paths. It passes through six separate mountain ranges, running from Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow alongside her longest loch, to the foot of Scotland’s highest mountains. But it runs close to a busy main road and avoids the mountain tops.
NOT The West Highland Way makes the most of the surrounding area, taking in sights that the linear Way doesn't allow. 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. Much better to cross these mountains than to pass them on your way by.
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.
