This final stage of the West Highland Way climbs up through the woods above Kinlochleven before following the route of the old Military Road through an empty glen flanked by grand mountains. There is then a stretch through forestry before a gradual descent into stunningly beautiful Glen Nevis - with the highest mountain in the UK towering ahead. The town of Fort William beckons for a deserved celebration.
Ascent through woods then long section on stony track. Forestry paths and tracks with a finish on tarmac pavement.
Kinlochleven is served by local buses; Fort William has a good Citylink bus service as well as a rail station.
