The West Highland Way – 95 miles from Milngavie to Fort William

In August-September of 2005, we hiked the West Highland Way, a 95 mile walk from Milngavie on the outskirts of Glasgow to Fort William. However, we elected to do it in proper style, unsupported, carrying all of our own supplies for the 8 day hike, and camping at all available wild campsites! We topped off the journey with an ascent of Ben Nevis via the Carn Mor Dearg arete, and an overnight camp on the summit of the Ben itself! What follows is our own account of our beautiful adventure.
