Not the West Highland Way
by Ronald Turnbull
The West Highland Way is one of the UK’s finest long distance walks, but the path runs close to a busy main road and avoids the mountain tops. NOT The West Highland Way describes alternative routes over mountains, smaller hills or high passes to all but one of the Way’s nine stages. With add-on day trips over Ben Lomond or Beinn Dorain.
Here at besthike we are NOT recommending the West Highland Way. There are plenty of better alternatives
Turnbull’s book details many of those alternatives close to the old trail.
Check it out for sure before deciding on the WHW.
