Support the West Highland Way

The West Highland Way is the most established and best-loved of Scotland’s long distance walking routes, attracting a growing number of UK and overseas visitors.  Officially opened on 6 October 1980, it celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2020.

Thousands of feet on 96 miles of path – plus all the bridges, gates, signage, drainage and so on – means there is a huge amount of work involved to maintain the Way in good condition.  The Scottish weather – and the increasing number of severe weather events – also cause damage such as fallen trees and excess water.

We’re excited to share our new West Highland Way highlights film showcasing not only the walk & people enjoying it, but also those who work really hard to maintain the path.  Thank you to everyone who participated and supports the trail. 

Please help us ensure it can be enjoyed by everyone for the next 40+ years!
