Some other ideas

If you are staying for a weekend or short break along the West Highland Way, there are some other things you could do whilst in the area:

From Drymen

This 3.5 mile (5.5 km) circular route along part of the West Highland and Rob Roy Way gives you a gentle introduction to these two long distance routes along with some lovely views.  Allow 1.5 hours.

From Drymen to Balmaha

This short video describes a 7 mile (11 km) walk along the West Highland Way from Drymen to Balmaha taking in Conic Hill, with spectacular views over Loch Lomond.  Allow 2.5-3 hours. (Please note, diversions may be in place during lambing season.)

From Balmaha

Starting from the centre of Balmaha, follow the oak-lined shore of Loch Lomond along part of the West Highland Way and climb up on to Craigie Fort, a magnificent viewpoint overlooking the loch, its islands and Ben Lomond.  Distance: 1¼ miles (2.1 km), allow 45 minutes. Varied path surface, including a short rough rocky section, some steep parts and uneven rocky steps.

From Tyndrum to Bridge of Orchy

The stretch of the West Highland Way between Tyndrum and Bridge of Orchy is approx. 6.5 miles and you have the option of starting at either end and returning by train or bus (or on foot if you want a longer walk).  This short video shows you what to expect.  Allow 3 hours.
