The West Highland Way The West Highland Way is the first of Scotland’s long distance routes and remains extremely popular. It starts in Milngavie on the edge of Glasgow and stretches to Fort William at the foot of Ben Nevis, the nearest part to us runs along the eastern shore of Loch Lomond. The route offers a fabulous introduction to the Scottish Highlands, glens and lochs West Highland Way: Drymen to Rowardennan You can park in Drymen and make direct access onto the West Highland way. The path climbs through a section of forestry beside Loch Lomond before crossing moorland to reach Conic Hill. The view from the summit is quite breathtaking overlooking Loch Lomond and its islands. After the village of Balmaha, the route stays close to Loch Lomond on an undulating but very scenic stretch that leads on to Rowardennan. Please note that dogs are not allowed in the two enclosed fields on the approach to Conic Hill during the lambing season, which is normaly in April and May.
