Showcase your business to West Highland Way walkers!
A listing on our accommodation and services page offers a great opportunity to reach thousands of visitors from across the world who are preparing to walk the Way each year. Listings can be renewed annually and are available for accommodation providers, baggage carrying services, food & drink establishments, publishers, retailers and service providers – basically, any business on the 96 mile route or based elsewhere but offering a service or looking to reach walkers on the Way.
The West Highland Way Management Group invests significant time and resource each year into maintaining the 96 miles of path, but also the website, email enquiries, social media, official passport network, brand protection, and lots more.
We have invested in a new online directory to improve the experience for our website visitors and for businesses wishing to take out, amend or renew their listing on the website. Total sessions on westhighlandway.org in 2022 were 529,815 (16.5% higher than 2021) and we will to promote this directory section of the website to walkers this year.

- A – Small business (e.g. small café, B&B/self-catering (up to 3 rooms), small publisher, small retailer, not-for-profit; non-VAT registered)
- B – Medium business (e.g. bar/restaurant, medium/large café, guest house/small inn, larger retailers, baggage handlers, booking services, transport provider, small-medium attractions, medium-large publisher)
- C – Large business (e.g. hotels/hostels/other accommodation with 6+ bedrooms, large visitor attraction, campsite, larger visitor attractions, activity providers, tour operators)
