    The landscape is very beautiful and passes many great places. It is a very good entry stage for the WHW.
    In addition, a pause at the distillery Glengoyne worthwhile :)

  • Tip: Especially at the beginning of the WHW you can make a very good route, because the WHW goes along an old railway line, so there is hardly any incline.

  • If it's too crowded at the start: keep calm. You never walk alone at the WHW, but it pulls you apart
