Buchaille Etive Mor

West Highland Way - The North - 7 Days & 6 Nights (WSSWHW8)

Walk the northern portion of Scotland's most famous long distance trail - the West Highland Way. The trail winds it's way through the seemingly infinite highland glens of Western Scotland taking in iconic sights such as Buachaille Etive Mor (Scotland's most photographed mountain), and crossing the vast expanse of the remote Rannoch Moor. Immerse yourself in the landscape and enjoy camaraderie with other walkers along the trail.
