The West Highland Way was Scotland's first long distance route when it was opened in 1980, and the guide to the route has become an essential companion for those walking the 95 miles from Glasgow to Fort William, providing information on the many challenges on the route, but also increasing understanding of the landscape, land uses and history of the areas through which the route passes. The guide includes maps prepared by the Ordnance Survey. Originally written by Robert Aitken, the text has been revised to incorporate changes in the alignment and character of the route and the guide has a new look - full colour photographs and illustrations dramatically depicting the outstanding scenery through which the Way passes, unsurpassed by any other long distance route in Britain.
