The West Highland Way is managed by Highland, Stirling, Argyll & Bute and East Dunbartonshire Councils plus Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, which is the group’s lead body.  The Management Group invests significant time and resources each year to maintaining the West Highland Way as a quality walk.

For example, in 2018/19, the Management Group worked with funders to secure £290,000 towards core path maintenance projects.
