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.

"Kate Davies and Tom Barr live by Scotland's best-loved long-distance walking route: the West Highland Way. In this collaborative creative project they celebrate their home, their workplace, and the landscape which inspires them every day. Kate began by creating a collection of twelve hand-knit designs, each with its own distinctive story to tell. Balanced equally between garments and accessories, you might choose to knit a tweedy cardigan which echoes the mossy palette of Conic Hill, a delicate jumper recalling a favourite plant found on Rannoch Moor, or a shawl sparked by the energy of the Highlands' first 'electric village'. Each design is paired with an exploratory essay which sets Kate's designs and inspiration in their richer context. From Rob Roy's romantic (mis)representation to the beautiful songs of Donnchadh Bàn; from Loch Lomond's built environment to ways of seeing Rannoch Moor, Kate's writing reveals the West Highland Way as, first and foremost, a social landscape with an important cultural history. Kate's words and designs are accompanied by Tom's stunning photography, depicting the West Highland Way in all seasons of the year."--Publisher description.

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.
