Inverarnan to Tyndrum

Having immersed yourself in the surrounds of Loch Lomond, you will now enter a different landscape.  One of soaring mountains and gentle glen walking.

Following the River Falloch you will catch glimpses of the cascades of the Falls of Falloch before reaching the halfway point, Crianlarich. Although the Way skirts past the village, there is a spur path that takes you into Crianlarich for refreshments, services or accommodation.

Onwards the surrounding hills shepherd you towards Tyndrum initially following the River Fillan across the valley floor. At Kirkton Farm you’ll come across the ruins of St Fillan’s Priory and a graveyard, before you join the River Cononish into Tyndrum.

You can find out distances between various locations along the West Highland Way using the mileage chart lower down the page.
