Run-Camp-Run the epic West Highland Way with Nick and the team. No navigation or organising required, and no need to carry all your gear. The team will do everything for you (you'll do the running bit though).  Join a small group of all abilities to run one of the most iconic long distance routes in Britain. The West Highland Way takes you through some of Scotland's most beautiful landscapes. With your tent, food and clothing being transported between campsites for you, all you'll need to carry is a day bag with food and water (minimum 2 Litres of water). Once we reach our night stops we'll pitch our tents, cook and eat dinner together, before a well earned sleep. In the Scottish summer there is plenty of daylight to get the miles in, so there will be no rush on the running pace and we will all run as a group, covering the 150km over 4 days. Day 1: 37km, Day 2: 45km, Day 3: 44km, Day 4: 24km.




Beginning in Milngavie, just North of Glasgow we'll hop from campsite to campsite, running an average of 38km per day. As we head North we'll pass through Drymen, Balmaha and Rowardennan with Loch Lomond on our immediate left. With Ben Lomond on our right we'll continue through Inverarnan, Crianlarich, and Tyndrum, to the Bridge of Orchy. Now just over half way with some hefy hills behind us, we'll continue to Inveroran, Kingshouse and Kinlochleven with Glencoe on our West. We'll see Ben Nevis ahead and Loch Linnhe on our left as we trott the final few kilometers to our finishing post in Fort William. Note - We'll have a support vehicle to transport your bags - if you need/want to hop in the car for a few miles (or entire day), if your legs have had enough, this is always an option.

Day 1 - Thursday - 3rd July

Milngavie to Loch Lomond - 37km, 800m

Here we go! Day one will start in Milngavie and take us through the gravel trails of Mugdock country park to start. We will follow this for around 12 miles through to Drymen, where we'll stop for lunch (there's a shop and facilities). After lunch we will re-join the trail refreshed and ready for the first climb of the journey, Conic hill: a short but steep hill offering rewarding views. The descent from the summit is a rocky path that takes us down into Balmaha, a small town with plenty of rest stops. The remainder of the day will be back on the less hilly route taking us to our frist night stop at the south of Loch Lomond. Here we will set up camp, go fo a dip in the lake, and cook dinner together before bed.

Day 2 - Friday - 4th July

Loch Lomond to Tyndrum - 45km, 1100m

Today is our toughest day in terms of distance, and slightly more challenging than yesterday in terms of hills - but it's well worth it. The trail is beautiful as we run the rest of the length of loch lomond, past Ben Lomond on a simple undulating path. We'll then leave the lochside to continue towards Tyndrum, stopping for lunch in Beinglas, before pushing on through spectacular high hills to reach Tyndrum. Here we will set up camp, get cleaned up and head to the Real Food Cafe for a hot dinner before turning in for the night. In this little village of Tyndrum there are some wee shops and pubs if you fancy some extra snacks or a well deserved pint or two.

Day 3 - Saturday - 5th July

Tyndrum to Kinlochleven, 44km, 1000m

After a good group breakfast and packing up camp, we'll set off running through some spectacular hills, to the Bridge of Orchy. We'll stop for some lunch here before taking the trail part of the iconic Ronnoch Moor. This is one of the last remaining wildernesses of Europe spanning over 50 square metres, but don't worry we're only running through a portion of it! Rannoch Moor will lead us into Glencoe in the presence of some humbling Munroes. If we're feeling tired we can stop in the Kinghouse bar in the Glencoe valley for a hot drink and a break for the legs before taking the final 9 miles to Kinlochleven. We'll pitch our tents for the last and final camp, get showered and eat together around the fire. Kinlochleven has a co-op and some pubs should we want to stock up on any extra snacks or pop for a pint (or shelter from any bad weather).

Day 4 - Sunday - 6th July

Kinlochleven to Fort William - 24km, 650m


For our final day we'll cook and make our breakfast at camp or head out for our last day and final stretch of the West Highland Way. You're just 15 miles from the finish in Fort William. Today offers more magical views of some of Scotlands greatest peaks and valleys, including Ben Nevis. In comparison to the bigger mileages days, today will feel like our victory lap. We'll finish with an overwhelming sense of pride and appreciation in just how far our legs have taken us. Time to celebrate in the pub! We'll be back in plenty of time for a big pub lunch all together before your Run Weekend comes to a close. The best route back to Milngavie is by train. And it's great to give perspective on the huge sense of the distance you've just ran - that's if you can keep your eyes open.
