Beast of a hike but awesome!

Great walk, great exposure to sun and can see far for most of the walk.

The uphill trail in the middle was good for working out, and a jog down increased the heart rate. Tired by the end, but plenty of places to visit on the way back.

Would go back & recommend going back with friends and family.

Would go for a speedy trek if I wanted to work out... very nice to go, we came from Birmingham and appears to be local.

We wore, meindl men’s Cambridge GTX walking shoe, and salomon 3D 4 gtx womens. 32 degrees clear skies sunny all day

Easy light walk with good views along the river.

I absolutely loved the west highland way. Scotland is such a beautiful county and this trail shows you many diffrent sides of it. The rain ads to the true Scottish experience, the people I met along the way are great and the views are breathtaking. This hike is perfect for a first time long distance, sometimes a little challenging but overall not too hard!

Terrible and of no use

We booked the Rob Roy way with Hillwalk Tours, so we had B&Bs booked along the way and also had luggage transport, so we only needed to bring our daypacks. We did it in 6 days (18, 15, 26, 24, 16, 16km) and only skipped one short part that's all along a narrow main road.
Absolutely loved the landscapes and the scenery! the people all along the way we're exceptionally friendly and nice. The track is not very well marked most of the way (it follows the cycle route 7 for long parts which is very well signposted, but the parts that differed often weren't marked at all especially between Drymen and Ardeonaig. From Acharn on it was well marked.)

We had an absolutely fantastic stay, the walk wasn't to hard, but still challenging enough for semi fit people to be a good balance.

Especially the stretch from Acharn to Aberfeldy is absolutely stunning - especially the last leg when you go by so many beautiful waterfalls!

Strongly suggest to bring a change of shoes as there's some part over a moor, that will soak even the best shoes completely in bad weather, unless it's wellies...

Weather: it rained nearly every day, which added “atmosphere” and challenges, but low clouds also blocked many of the mountain views (we saw them on the train ride back)

What’s great: 96 miles (we did it in 7 days). You can stay in villages along the way (don’t have to carry a heavy pack). You can also have your extra luggage transported between lodgings.

The experience: walking an average of 14+ miles a day is good for the soul. My mind found absolute bliss on the trail - even in heavy rain and wind. Loved that aspect (and am struggling a wee bit being back in cities).

The views: the Highlands and Loch Lomand are beautiful. I’d estimate that is about 33% of the trip. Another 33%+, though, is walking across / near pastures / road / train tracks. The remaining 1/3 was in forest or near streams / rivers. So while my mind was able to escape with the rhythm of hiking, I never really felt a wilderness escape. Just adjust your expectations accordingly (ie this is not total wilderness immersion like hut-to-hut trips in New Zealand, Tasmania or other parts of the world).

People: the majority were friendly. Never felt unsafe. Mostly Europeans (not many Americans) and quite a few Scots. The Way never felt crowded (except day hikers at Conic Hill).

Advice: take your time. Take breaks. Find an easy pace - 14+ miles will wear on you if you pound out the miles. 7 days means you probably have one 20 mile day - I was a bit jealous of the people who took an extra day.

Cost: it was pretty reasonable. I used Gemini Walks, who arranged all lodging and luggage transport. I heard only positive reviews of other trip planners as well.

Part pilgrims way, part farmland with good views, lots of stinging nettles!

Just completed this in June 2018 over a 10 day period. Some complete this in as little as 4. Overall moderate difficulty. Though some days are more challenging.Highly recommended. See my 10 recordings for a daily record and description for each days hike. Look me up on facebook for a complete photo record of each day. We booked the hike with Macs Adventures who we highly recommend.

Beautiful walking in Malvern

A good trail which follows a signed Coldrum Trail for much of the way with an extension to take in the stones. At least that was our impression, as the markers were not always obvious and we used the app map several times. The stones are worth visiting, what an amazing find. Near there appeared to be a path which could cut the route in half for those that prefer a short hike. We had dogs and other than the Trosley country park itself we had them unleashed for much of the walk.

Just completed this in May 2018 - used a different app to record it. The official Way is 96 miles but distance can vary depending on where you stay. I started from Drymen (prounounced Dri-men with rolled rrrr) taking a train and bus from Glasgow, skipping the official start in Milngavie (prounouced Mul-guy). Hiked for 7 days - 15.3 miles (Drymen - Rowardennan), 13.8 miles (Rowardennan - Inverarnan), 6.7 miles (Inverarnan - Crainlarch), 14.5 miles (Crainlarch - Bridge of Orchy), 11.3 miles (B of O - White Corries/bus stop to Glencoe), 9.32 miles (White Corries - Kinlochleven), and 16.1 miles ( Kinlochleven - Ft William) for daily mileage, ending in Fort William. If you wild camp and have more time, you have a bit more freedom as to daily mileage. May was glorious (and I was told many times that it was highly unusual to not have any rain for a whole week) - I booked rooms and hostels 6 months in advance and there were limited options so plan ahead. The hike itself is not difficult or technical, but the old military roads and long daily distances can be taxing on feet and knees. All is cured with a pint at the end of the day. Met great folks and fell in love with Scotland. This was my first long distance inn-to-inn hike. If you do have more time, I highly recommend spending a few extra days in Glencoe.

Lots of volcanic rock and tree roots to watch your footing on. South end was a bit swampy but overall hike was great. Use bug spray and take water! You will sweat

Long walk in and steep up to ridge but well worth the hard work for the amazing views.

Stunning

The Cotswold Way is a fabulous walk. I walked it over an 8 day period in March. It was very muddy and we still had snow on the ground but the scenery was spectacular.

Stunning views

The perfect short 1 hour hike. Absolutely beautiful. The wishing tree was a plus!

Really enjoying this route. It’s becoming more popular too. Mainly following National cycling route 7 means there is a little too much tarmac but the stretches which go high above the lochs afford the best views. So go high at every opportunity. The stretch between Ardtalnaig and Aberfeldy is one of the most scenic but all of the stages have there own high point. You won’t be disappointed

Beautiful scenery had an amazing time. Didn't do the whole trail as there was a ram at the top my dog took a disliking to but still completed a loop. The rocky cliffs remind me of the rock monsters from the never ending story.

This is a good beginner multi day distance hike. It is very wet though so expect to be in the rain a large portion of your time.

Done this walk many times with dogs and always enjoyed it no matter the weather

Beautiful walk with something for everyone can be difficult climb in places but worth the views
Lots of fallen trees over route so be careful

Half of the way was on a road without any foodpath.
