    Travel & Transfers

    To get to the start of your route, my recommendation is to fly into Glasgow Airport, as it is the closest airport.

    From there you can take the "500 Airport Express" bus to the "Dundas Street" stop. This bus runs every 10 minutes and is operated by "First Bus".

    From there, you can take the "Scotrail" (train) from Queen Street Station to Milngavie. You can get tickets in advance on their website or you can buy them there directly.

    If you can't find suitable flights to Glasgow, another option would be to fly to Edinburgh, although from Edinburgh, you will need to take a bus to Glasgow (Megabus AIR).

    At the end of your journey in Fort William, you can always catch the 914, 915 and 916 buses, operated by "Citylink" or take the train to Glasgow Queen Street, operated by "Scotrail".

    FAQs

    Absolutely! Each traveller has included 1 piece of luggage that we will transfer between your accommodations. It's important that this piece of luggage meets the following criterias:

    • Maximum weight of 45 lbs (20 kg).
    • Must be only 1 piece of luggage without any attachments or accessories.
    • Should not contain valuables, fragile items, food or medications.
    • Must be correctly identified (booking reference of your trip and the full name of the trip holder).

    The approximate luggage delivery time will be at 4:00 PM.

    We recommend that you book as soon as you are sure about your dates, as accommodation can fill up very quickly in this area.

    Once you make your reservation we will send you all the detailed information about the specific equipment you need for this route, considering recommendations for shoes, boots, clothes and a day-to day backpack. 

    This trip is available in spring, summer and autumn, worthwhile at any time, and you can enjoy it to the fullest. It depends on your preference when you decide to do so.

    This walking holiday to the south on The West Highland Way demands being a very good physical condition to be able to travel the long distances along the routes, as many include undulating terrain.

    If you're not used to an active lifestyle, you'll need to start physically preparing at least 6 months before your trip.

    You can call us to arrange a private transfer for you.

    If you prefer, you can also use public transport or local taxis to get to your next accommodation.

    The administration was good before our trip and our questions were answered quickly. The accommodation was also good. We had no problems with the baggage transfer too.
    Our group of 5 had a really great experience with orbis ways. Our contact person was helpful via email and via phone. Great accommodations and each host was helpful and generous with kindness.
    I travelled last week to Madeira with Orbis Ways and it has been an amazing experience. Accommodations were exceptional, and everything was explained very well, apart from that the Island is amazing, must be seen at least once in a lifetime. Dinners were very good, with local fresh homemade food! Very recomending!!!
    Excellent trip. Excellent communication with Orbis. Lovely accommodations. Luggage transfer was always done well and the overall trip was excellent. I cannot wait to do another walk in 2023 and will use Orbis ways 100%.
    Few days ago I finished Camino Francés. Orbis Ways planned the trip for me, arranged my routes and accommodations as well as luggage transfers. Everything went smoothly from the beginning in St Jean Pied du Port until the end in Santiago. Rooms with private bathrooms that they booked for me were comfortable and clean and luggage transfers underwent without mistakes. My daily routes were well planned. In 34 days I had only two problematic situations with accommodations and their 24 hours assistance team solved them in few minutes. I enjoyed every minute of my Way. I am planning to return and do some other route - Norte and Portugués gor sure. Orbis Ways will be my choice again.
    I did the wonderful walking holiday trip of 8 days Mont Blanc...the experience was incredible, from the beginning everything chosen in the dossier was beyond expectations, providing all the necessary information.I am very grateful for the wonderful and detailed attention of Jhonay. Also the accommodations chosen were very comfortable!I have no doubt that I will repeat as soon as I can, the routes are spectacular!
    Orbisways did an outstanding job of planning our trip along the Camino de Santiago. The provided voucher provided excellent information, the accommodations were awesome, never had any confusion regarding travel details and the staff I worked with prior to our trip were kind and very efficient. I highly recommend OrbisWays and will definitely be traveling with them again!!
