West Highland Way 3: Rowardennan to Inverarnan

This is a tough section which takes some walker's by surprise. Once out of the initial forestry the route is very scenic, refreshment, accommodation and informal camping available at Inversnaid Hotel, also Inversnaid Bunkhouse, and there are two MBA bothies on route. Camping at Beinglas, and Hotel and B&Bs at Inverarnan.


Some forest tracks but also much rugged walking and ascent/descent on the lochside path which is not suitable for bikes.

Public Transport

None to start. Summer ferry from Tarbet to Rowardennan, buses to Tarbet; Inverarnan has Citylink buses from Glasgow and Fort William. Traveline Scotland.
