Drumgoyne Hill, Strathblane

Opened in 1980, the West Highland Way starts at Milngavie to the north of Glasgow City Centre and travels north for 95 miles (152 km). Along its route it passes from the Scottish Lowlands, past Loch Lomond and the Highland Boundary Fault, and into the Scottish Highlands to finish at Fort William at the foot of Ben Nevis. The route follows old drove roads, used by herdsmen for moving sheep and cattle to markets in the south, military roads, built by General Wade to help control the Jacobite Clans and old coaching roads and railway routes from the recent past.
