The West Highland Way





The West Highland Way is the first and one of the longer of the long distance trails in Scotland. It was opened in 1980 and stretches for 152 kilometres (95 miles) from the Glasgow suburb of Milngavie to the town of Fort William at the foot of Ben Nevis.


The West Highland Way starts at the north end of the station where a pedestrian underpass dips under Woodburn Way and up into Station Road. The road merges into Douglas Street after 150 metres where there is a shopping precinct (the last chance to top up your supplies before Fort William) and a monument for the official start of the West Highland Way. A walkway then leaves Douglas Street to cross over Allander Water to the rear of the shops and across a couple of roads to a sunken, tree-shaded path. This path follows the line of an old railway line that served a former paper mill on the river. This mill and others on the Allander Water were responsible for the growth of Milngavie in the 1830's into a sizable town.
