East Highland Way

'The contrast in natural habitats along the route imbues the East Highland Way with a distinctive character. The journey passes seamlessly through enchanting broadleaf forests, loch-side trails and quiet mountain wilderness. It skirts unspoilt marshlands and also explores the last remnants of the ancient Caledonian forests of Inshriach. The route has been optimised to engage with accommodation wherever possible, making it more accessible for walkers of all abilities.'
