Information on West Highland Way 

The West Highland Way was Scotlands first official long distance route. Originally conceived in the 1960s, it was completed in October 1980. The Way links Milngavie to Fort William (a distance of 152km/95 miles) from the outskirts of Scotlands largest city to the foot of its highest mountain, following the shores of its largest freshwater loch. It passes from the lowlands, across the Highland Boundary Fault and on into the Scottish Highlands
  
Across Rannoch Moor and along the West Highland Way to Banavie, and Chase The Wild Goose Hostel inn Banavie Fort William

The West Highland Way passes through a wide range of different terrains, ranging from lowland moors, through dense woodland and rolling hills, to high mountainous regions. This variety of environments provides habitats for a diverse range of wildlife species, both flora and fauna. Some species are more common than others and some are rarely seen. If you are lucky enough to spot one of the rarer varieties, consider yourself privileged indeed

Chase The Wild goose hostel is just a short walk or taxi ride beyond the end of the west highland Way. The Moorings Hotel and Lochy Bar are nearby, and you'll get a good night's rest out of town.
 

The West Highland Way is the original and most popular long distance path in Scotland. The 95 mile (154 km) trail starts just north of Glasgow, and takes you through some of the most dramatic landscapes in the western Highlands. A variety of forestry trails and historic drove roads take you north, passing by Loch Lomond, Ben Dorain, Rannoch Moor and Glencoe. The West Highland Way ends in Fort William, in the shadow of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland. This is a strenuous trek and should only be attempted by walkers with a good level of fitness and stamina

Finish your long distance walk of the West Highland Way at Chase The Wild Goose Hostel at Banavie just 2 miles from Fort William - a short taxi ride costing a few pounds will take you to the door. Its a great place to celebrate and rest in an out of town environment in Scotland.
 The Moorings Hotel and Lochy Bar are nearby for meals and well-earned refreshments, and you'll get a good night's rest away from the early morning revellers staying in town
