West Highland Way Commemorative Pillars unveiled at the Devil’s Staircase

Devil's Staircase Pillars

The Highland Council, as part of The West Highland Way Management Group, unveiled bespoke oak pillars at Devil’s Staircase, Glencoe in celebration of the founding of the West Highland Way (WHW) in 1980 and marked the occasion in full spirits with an uplifting rendition of ‘Home Bird’ by the incredible Scottish duo ‘The Laurettes’.

Engraved on the pillars is an original design and the story of the foreboding Devil’s Staircase. The top of this section is the highest point on the West Highland Way at 550m (1850ft) and lives infamously in the memory of many a walker.

More on the pillars can be found on the Highland Council website.
