Even the tough bits are stun­ning

Ed Terry, Mountain Leader and West High­land Way guide for This­tle Trekking

My favourite sec­tion is prob­a­bly the tough­est, and that’s from Rowar­den­nan to In­ver­ar­nan. It takes you all along the loch shore of Lomond, you’re scram­bling up and down, and it’s very chal­leng­ing but very re­ward­ing. You get great views across the loch to The Cob­bler and the rest of the Ar­rochar Alps mountain range, and an amaz­ing view back down the loch. Look out for feral goats along the way, too. But from the feed­back I get from the peo­ple I guide, the sec­tion from King­shouse to Kin­lochleven tends to in­spire them the most. You get a fan­tas­tic view through Glen Coe, climb the Devil’s Stair­case, walk past the hy­dro-elec­tric sta­tion, and then re­join civil­i­sa­tion at Kin­lochleven.”
