The West Highland Way.
The photograph on the right is the highpoint on the
entire West Highland Way, at 1850 feet.
The top of The Devils Staircase.An initially pleasant and not too steep mile going South out of the village through pleasant woodland, gives way to serious climbing - though still very nice indeed. The climb is again long, and quite arduous at times, but the reward is worth every tired step you take. The path is very clear, and eventually opens out after around 3 miles to reveal more absolutely stunning views. Surrounded again by breathtaking mountains, scattered hill streams, you will be regularly stopping for a break by using the "just going to take a picture" excuse. But really, no excuse is needed for this is a truly stunning area, and should not be rushed but every moment and view savoured.
