West Highland Way

West Highland Way


October 2012



The 96 miles Route starts at Milngavie passes through Mugdock Country Park, follows the shores of Loch Lomond, passing Ben Lomond, through Glen Falloch and Strathfillan, crossing Rannoch Moor, past Buachaille Etive Mor to the head of Glencoe, climbing the Devil’s Staircase, descending to sea level to cross the River Leven at the head of Loch Leven before entering Lairigmor and Glen Nevis and finishes at Gordon Square in Fort William. The terrain ranges from lowland moors, dense woodland and rolling hills, to high mountainous regions in the Scottish Highlands. These environments provide habitats for a diverse range of wildlife species, both flora and fauna.

West Coast Trail

What is the West Coast Trail?


July 2002





The 75 km (47 mile) trail lies along the western side of Vancouver Island, open from May 1 to September 30. It'll take about 5-7 days to hike the entire length.

Although the Island's got a mild and temperate climate, the West Coast dampness can chill you right to the bone - mostly at night.
But if you're looking for a rugged hiking vacation that tests you to the limits, then this is one adventure waiting for you!
Be prepared for some serious diversity! Climb over ocean boulders and wade through mud bogs. Ride cable cars, haul yourself up rocky cliffs on pull ropes, climb ladders and bounce your way over a suspension bridge!

Beaches, caves, cliffs and waterfalls is part of the scenery, and watch for fascinating tidal pools too. You'll be dwarfed by old-growth trees in the coastal rainforest, and in awe of the morning mist rising from the forest floor.
