The West Highland Way trip starts from Drymen and ends in Fort William. It is a walking trip that takes 8 days taking you through Drymen, Inveroran, Rowardennan and 4 other destinations in Scotland. West Highland Way is a self-guided trip that includes accommodation, meals and others.

Walk through the stunning Scottish Highlands from Loch Lomond to Ben Nevis on this iconic route. This tour follows most of the 92-mile national long distance trail of the same name through the southwestern part of the Scottish Highlands. It is claimed by some to be the most popular long distance trail in the British Isles. Starting at the village of Drymen just outside Glasgow, it includes Loch Lomond, valley routes through the mountains round Crianlarich and open heather moorland across the Rannoch Moor wilderness area. It passes close to somber Glencoe, famed for its massacre of the MacDonald Clan, and finishes at Fort William near the foot of Ben Nevis (Britain's highest peak, which can be readily ascended by experienced clients if they choose to spend an extra day). The West Highland Way is a well-established and popular route, containing some landscapes of great beauty. The altitude range is from sea level to 1850 ft (4408 ft if Ben Nevis is climbed).

“This was our second great trip with Sherpa. In the future, we will always explore the Sherpa option, if available, first before booking any other hiking trips. We loved the inns that we stayed at. Good rooms with good dining options. Great friendly people at the inns. Very helpful”
