Discover Scotland: Complete The West Highland Way
The West Highland Way is Scotland’s best known long distance trekking route. Active’s West Highland Way Adventure is a cunning variation of the original route, travelling on foot and by bike, canoe and sea kayak. The journey takes you to many breath-taking places; along the shores of Loch Lomond, through Glen Falloch, crossing Rannoch Moor to the foot of the mighty Buachaille Etive Mor before ascending the Devils Staircase in Glencoe over to Loch Leven and finishing in the heart of Fort William. Along its way you are steeped in the history and culture of Scotland and its people, giving you a truly diverse Scottish adventure experience the best way possible.
This classic journey begins just outside Glasgow and takes you 103 miles from lowland moors to high mountains and flowing streams through expansive inland and sea lochs. The journey finishes under the shadow of Ben Nevis at Fort William.
The Journey takes your across some of the most iconic landscapes in Scotland. Each day you will be surrounded by nature, the mountains and Scotland in all its glory. We combine the adventure trip with hostel accommodation and camping so you will experience the best of both worlds; the comfort and the wilderness!
Grade and Experience
This trip is fairly challenging for moderately fit adults. It follows good tracks, with canoeing and sea kayaking on fairly open inland & coastal waters. In bad weather the mode of travel may have to be changed for the safety & well being of the group. We can help you prepare and get the most from your adventure holiday – we can offer 1 or 2 day paddling skill days prior to your start day.
