The 96 mile West Highland Way stretches from Milngavie to Fort William, follows a mixture of cattle paths, old military roads, drover tracks while undulating alongside lochs, over moorland, and through forests. The West Highland Way is undoubtedly the most famous long-distance hiking trail in Scotland.
There’s something about long-distance hikes that feels very soothing. Walking for days on end and not worrying about anything other than how to get from one place to the next has a very simple, relaxing charm to it, and hiking enthusiasts know all about how energizing it can be. If you decide to visit one of the countries with the most beautiful, untouched nature on top of it? Well, you’re in for a wonderful experience.
If you want to get away from it all on one of Scotland’s long-distance hiking routes then there’s perhaps nowhere better to head to on your next walking holiday than the Southern Upland Way.
The beauty of the highlands is something that you really do have to see to believe, and it’s an experience that will stay with you for a lifetime.
Many people will tell you that a holiday is only a holiday when you’re sunning yourself on a beach and that Scotland just doesn’t afford you such opportunities. But what they’re missing is the beauty of unspoiled nature at its finest.
