West Highland Way - Trailblazer

West Highland Way - Trailblazer

Trailblazer's guide to the West Highland Way written by Charlie Loram.

The West Highland Way passes through some of the most spectacular scenery in all of Britain. From the outskirts of Glasgow it winds for 95 miles (152km) along the wooded banks of Loch Lomond, across the wilderness of Rannoch Moor, over the mountains above Glencoe to a dramatic finish at the foot of Ben Nevis – Britain's highest mountain.
