About this book

The 95 miles (152km) of the West Highland Way passes through the lush lowlands north of Milngavie into the rugged landscapes of Loch Lomond, Glen Falloch and Strath Fillan before heading for Rannoch Moor and Black Mount. Touching briefly on Glencoe, it climbs finally to the hidden glen of Lairig Mor before finishing in Fort William.

This third edition of Cicerone's popular guide to the West Highland Way has been fully updated and now provides an additional description of the route from north to south.
