This is perhaps the toughest section of the West Highland Way - taking by surprise any walkers expecting an easy lochside stroll. The route is very scenic with some beautiful native woodland as well as short, less attractive forestry sections - and good views over Loch Lomond for much of the way. Refreshment and accommodation is available at Inversnaid Hotel and Inversnaid Bunkhouse; and there are also two MBA bothies on route. Camping at Beinglas, and Hotel and B&Bs at Inverarnan near the stage end.
Some forest tracks but also much rugged walking and ascent/descent on the lochside path which is very rocky and rough at times. Not suitable for bikes.
None to start. Summer ferry from Tarbet to Rowardennan, buses to Tarbet; Inverarnan has Citylink buses from Glasgow and Fort William.
