#1 - West Highland Way: Kinlochleven to Fort William
Kinlochleven, Highland, Scotland
hardYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(47)
Length: 15.9 mi • Est. 8 h 19 m
Mostly level walking. A little climb near end; then a winding drop down to Fort William. While relatively flat, it can be difficult underfoot in places because of water flowing across large segments of the track. You can pick your way over much of it thanks to the rocky terrain but those who are not reasonably sure of foot may struggle in wet weather.Show more
