How long to walk the West Highland Way

The West Highland Way, like many long distance walks can be tailor made to be as easy or hard as you like. Firstly, I want to point out that there is no right or wrong way to walk the trail. If you want to march the trail in 3 days, theres options for you and if you want to slowly digest the route, then there are options for you here too. 

How long to walk the West Highland Way?

Slow travel is taking a huge quantum leap. 

For many walkers, and I dare say the majority, taking the route slow is becoming really popular, regardless of age.

Why?

Well it’s simple. You can sample all there is to sample along the route. By eliminating the huge daily mileage, you instantly free yourself up to enjoy the views, attractions, pubs and tea rooms available on route. 

One example of an easy itinerary is this one below, as adapted from Contours Walking Holidays

Travel to Milngavie
Day 1: Milngavie to Drymen – 12 miles / 19km
Day 2: Drymen to Balmaha – 6.5 miles / 10.5km
Day 3: Balmaha to Rowardennan – 7.5 miles / 12km
Day 4: Rowardennan to Inverarnan – 14 miles / 22km
Day 5: Inverarnan to Tyndrum – 13 miles  /21km
Day 6: Tyndrum to Inveroran – 10 miles  / 16km
Day 7: Inveroran to Kingshouse – 10 miles / 16km
Day 8: Kingshouse to Kinlochleven – 9 miles / 14.5km
Day 9: Kinlochleven to Fort William – 14 miles / 22km
Depart from Fort William

This itinerary, with an average daily milage of 10.6 is an ideal starting point a slow walk. 

Doing it in halfs

How long to walk the West Highland Way if you want to walk the West Highland Way but you don’t have 10 days spare? Well It’s perfectly acceptable to walk the route in two half’s. A good mid-way stopping point is Tyndrum which has two train stations giving you public transport back to the start. Moreover, a few of the luggage transfer companies offer returns to the start of the route for a reasonable price. 

The marchers

Whether you enjoy a personal challenge, sponsored walk, trail run, or your just too damn hardcore and simply want to tick the trail off your list in a weekend (please write and let us know how you do!), there are itineraries to suit.

Personally, I feel there is no shame in enjoying the comfort of a B&B if you are walking/running/unicycling the route in 4 days. 

Either way, Hillwalk Tours offer an excellent option of routes, including a 4 day challenge hike from Inveroran to Fort William. There are other companies offering challenge hikes too, such as the West Highland Way Challenger, who offer walk support or the West Highland Way Race

The takeaway

So there you have it. How long to walk the West Highland Way. Be sure to pick a route based on your ability rather than feeling like you have to overacieve. Slow is great, so is  fast. There really is no right of wrong way to walk the route. 

Walk or run the route happy rather than bent and broken, from biting off more than you can chew.

The Best West Highland Way Luggage Transfer Companies

West Highland Way luggage transfer

Hey Hikers! In this article I hope to help you in your search to find a suitable West Highland Way luggage transfer (baggage transfer) company to carry your bags along the length of this trail. 

There’s a growing number of services along long distance walks, and the West Highland Way is no exception. However it can be a little overwhelming

Travel Lite UK

The first option available to you is Travel Lite UK who offer a simple to use booking service along the West Highland Way. You can checkout on their website. Rate are from £30.00 for a half route, and £45.00 for a full route. This is a great value luggage transfer service

The entertaingly named Ginger Routes are no laughing matter. This professional bag transfer company boasts excellent reviews and offers bag transfer from £40.00 per bag with no deposit required which is a great deal.

The Top 5 West Highland Way Tours – Self Guided

West Highland Way Tours

Shopping for your next walking holiday is exhasting. I know first hand, that there are a whole bunch of walking holiday companies, from small independant tour operators to larger companies, owned by big tourism firms. This article aims to help you slim down your list of West Highland Way Tours.

Generally speaking, especially with the West Highland way, there has been a bit of a race to the bottom in terms of pricing. If you are happy with a ‘normal’ room, by this I mean a standard 3-4 star B&B, the prices are reasonable.

I hope here to assist in your search to find suitable West Highland Way tours . If you do choose to book with any of the tour operators below, please do let them know that I sent you!

All of the companies reviewed below are offering self-guided West Highland Way tours. Due to the ever changing pricing of tours, prices are not displayed in this article

Macs Adventure

Macs Adventure, a Glasgow based business offer 11 individual itinerary options for the West Highland Way. You can book short breaks, or walk highlights through too long slow experiences spanning over 11 days – Ideal for slow travel experiences. I always love slow tours – taking my time to enjoy walking, and traveling, rather than rushing along the long distance trail, getting it ‘in the bag’.

However if getting it in the bag is your thing, as with all the options here, Macs Adventure offer a 6 Day itinerary which will see you walking for about 9 hours each day – OUCH!

Macs Adventure, as ever are a safe bet for booking your walking holiday.

Wilderness Scotland

Wilderness Scotland offer a huge range of varied activities within Scotland, from kayaking, photography, road and mountain biking, and walking. It’s only natural that they offer their services booking self-guided tours along the West Highland Way. Unlike Mac’s Adventure, Wilderness Scotland focus on a single selection, of what they deem to be the best route on offer – which is 8 days walking, and 9 nights of accommodation.

Wilderness Scotland also offer room upgrades, for an additional extra cost, with a further 5* upgrade stay in Inverlochy Castle and Glencoe House.

Easy Ways

Easy Ways are a small business offering a simple B&B service along the West Highland Way. Since their start, offering exclusively Scottish routes, they have since branched out to other areas too so they may be worth a look if you are planning a Camino walk. They offer 5, 6, 7, and 8-night itineraries, in addition to half route itineraries if you don’t have the time to complete in one go. They also offer an ultra which is to be completed in 3 days.

Upgrades are offered, but the base prices are competitive against the other options here.

Thistle Trekking

Thistle Trekking offer mountaineering courses and guided walking holidays. However as a highly experienced tourism company, yet relatively young (started in 2011) they are certainly worth a submission. Their only self-guided itinerary is an 8 day West Highland Way route, but you can be sure that their local knowledge of the area will ensure that you have a seamless experience.

Hillwalk Tours

Hill Walk tours are included in this list due to their outstanding reviews on Trust pilot, Facebook and TripAdvisor. They provide 4-9 day itineraries to suit walkers of all abilities, backed up by competitive pricing and of course a neat tour pack delivered to your address prior to the start of your walk.

Some of our Favourite Indoor, Outdoor #hashtags

I’m focusing on positive in this post. I apologize if I may seem insensitive skipping over the lives lost due to COVID, or how it’s impacting on people globally. The media are doing a fine job of that, so I am going to talk about some fun stuff that has been keeping us all entertained. Right, that’s out the way, so let’s get into the Outdoor, Indoor challenges which have been circulating out social feeds over the last few weeks.

With many of us being locked indoors, and either furloughed, or working from home, and obviously, in some cases unemployed, we have had little to do, or at least less to do than usual.

For outdoorsy folks, like me, getting into the hills has not been an option. However, there have been a number of exiting challenger which have graced our social feeds. These challenges, mostly set up by brands, have been designed to inspire us to live adventeourlsy despite adventure being off-limits.

Here is a roundup of some of these great ideas!

Ordnance Survey – Step up for Britain

The obvious one and probably the campaign which I saw all over my feed was the OS step up for Britain’s challenge. This excellent incentive by OS saw them partner with a number of other organizations to promote the UK’s biggest climbing challenge. The idea was simple: Do as many steps as you can, upload a video to OS of you doing your steps, and record, on their website how many steps you did. The idea was not for everyone to walk the height of Everest, but for each individual to take on their own personal challenge. I’ve not yet been able to find out how many steps were involved, but I am sure that there were many miles of stairs collectively climbed.

Cotswold Outdoors – #campingathome

Cotswold Outdoors had a really nice, and gentle idea – the Big Easter Camp-In. The idea was for Cotswold followers and fans to camp in for the night, or at the most, outside in a back garden. I loved scrolling through social media and seeing images of fully grown adults make dens. Here is one from one of my favorite bloggers – The Girl Outdoors.
