The West Highland Way is without a doubt one of our favourite routes to visit. Rannoch Moor is amazingly beautiful and we decided to go for a walk along it back in January. We were lucky to get a cold crisp day with clear paths and snow covered hills.
We saw lots of deer as the snow had forced them down and we got a few good photos of them watching us. The views are absolutely stunning and I had to keep stopping to take photos. We didn't see any other people along the way which only added to the remote and isolated atmosphere.
The walk is relatively flat along a worn land rover track. After a few hours, the snow started falling quite heavily so we decided to turn around a bit sooner than previously planned. We still totalled about 10 miles which the dogs seemed happy with.
Rosa is quite thin even by sight-hound standards so she has a fleece-lined waxed jacket to help cover her bare belly and keep her warm. She also loves the snow (she took a 'crazy' on top of Ben Nevis - it's a huge plateau and the snow and space was just too exciting for her).
Bob means business when he's out for walks and for him it's a constant forward march. It takes a lot to tire him out - we attached a Garmin Forerunner to his collar on a run once and he ran 8 miles while we logged a meagre 6. We're obviously far too slow for him!
This is a top walk and I would really recommend it. It is usually done as part of walking the entire West Highland Way. You can find more information on the walkhighlands website here.
