Absolutely amazing walk. Incredible 7 days, we did the following:
Milngavie - Drymen camp site
Drymen - Cashel
Cashel - Inversnaid
Inversnaid - Tyndrum
Tyndrum - Glencoe Resort
Glencoe - Kinlochleven
Kinlochleven - Fort William

Day 4 or 5 was probably the hardest, with day 4 being a very slow start due to the punishing North Bank of Loch Lomond, but the seemingly endless military road on day 5 was hard on the mrs feet (walking shoes not boots)

Stay for two nights in Fort Bill, then we’re off to do the Great Glen
Thank you Scotland

Hi Tom

I did the WHW & GGW (a few years ago) as a combo just as you seem to be doing and it makes for a really great route. The GGW is so different from the WHW. Of the two, I preferred the GGW but it has it's critics.

Hope you enjoy it as much as you seem to have enjoyed the first part of your walk.
