Route information
Day 2: Milngavie - Drymen (24k)
Your first day of trekking will be a 24k trek through the beautiful Celtic Countryside. This day will be perfect for all as it covers a completely flat route. You will wind your way through fantastic green hills, past awe-inspiring rivers and lochs. You will then visit the Glenoyne Whiskey distillery for a tasting session before heading to Drymen.
Day 3: Drymen - Rowardennan (27k)
Starting at the foot of Conic Hill you will begin to ascend straight up as you start the day. Embrace the burn as you reach the top of the hills and admire the panoramic vistas. After this climb, you will rest before heading into the ancient oak woodlands before finishing the day in Rowardennan.
Day 4: Rowardennan - Inveraran (25k)
Take on footpaths through forests as you trek north along the eastern shore of Loch Lomond. There will be lots of scenery to keep you entertained. The terrain will be a bit rocky with a few crags and boulders designed to challenge you.
Day 5: Inverarnan - Tyndrum (20k)
From Inveraran you will follow the River Falloch. This route will be undulating throughout with some moderate hills to overcome. You will then reach Crainlarich where you can spot the famous Jacobite Steam Train. From here you will follow the River Fillan across the valley floor and pass the ancient ruins of St Fillan's Priory.
Day 6: Tydrum - Kingshouse (30k)
Heading from Tydrum to Kingshouse you will reach the boggy Rannoch moor, which will be one of the boggiest parts of the trek. There will be fantastic scenery to embrace as you explore. You will end the day at the Buchaille Etive Mor, a famous mountain that features in James Bond's Skyfall.
Day 7: Kingshouse - Kinlochleven (17k)
This day you will encounter the Devil's Staircase. There will be moderate climbs on the beckons and you will zig-zag up to the highest point of the Highland Way. From the top take in the iconic views, then you will wind through remote hills and finish in the picturesque village of Kinlochleven.
Day 8: Kinlochleven - Fort William
The final day's hike will be the toughest of the whole week. You will ascend out of Kinlochleven and take in amazing views of Loch Leven that span for miles.
