The West Highland Way is one of the few long distance trails that I have walked in its entirety. However, it wasn't all done in one setting and there are parts that I'd like to walk again, even now. The stretch between Bridge of Orchy and Kingshouse Hotel is but one because I'd like to see the scenery north of Glencoe on a more sunny day like that which made going from Kinlochleven to Fort William most memorable. The first part of it was walked in earnest in 2002, and I hiked it in piecemeal fashion after that, completing it with a two-day walk between Inverarnan and Bridge of Orchy. That was preceded by the Loch Lomond stretch between Inverarnan and Drymen, an overnight backpacking affair involving a stay at Rowardennan youth hostel. Though I question its routing in places, the trail undeniably is a great introduction to long distance walking in Scotland.
