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 entered its 40th anniversary year in October 2020.

Help us ensure it can be enjoyed by everyone for the next 40 years!

Conic Hill

Conic Hill is a particularly popular part of the West Highland Way, with people climbing up the hill to enjoy the amazing views over Loch Lomond. However, this many feet on the path does cause erosion and the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park is starting work on a maintenance project to repair the path in autumn 2021. It will be a big task over c.3 years to carry out the upgrades, costing over £600,000.  If you want to support the work so that it can be completed more quickly, please make a donation today:

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.
