The West Highland Way

If you don’t know what the West Highland way is, you’re not from around these parts.

The country’s best loved-long distance walking route passes a few metres from our doorstep and has established the Kingshouse Hotel as an essential walkers watering hole. Developed in 1980 it was the first long distance footpath in Scotland, running a linear route of 96 miles (154km) from Glasgow to Fort William.

The West Highland Way website has all the essential information on the route, recommended itineraries and all frequently asked questions.

If you are planning to walk the west highland way and want to book accommodation, we have three options – staying in our bunkhouse, there is a flat patch on the other side of the bridge perfect for wild camping or indeed, who said adventurers had to slum it? Rooms in the hotel make for a well-earned treat to mark the two-thirds complete landmark…


Shared rooms, bunkhouse accommodation in a truly spectacular location. Drying rooms, plug points, showers, communal kitchen area and laundry. Everything needed for a refresh as you start to feel Fort William get closer.

Follow the footsteps of Wordsworth and enjoy a dram in the original 18th-century Kingshouse building, restored back to do exactly what it was established for – a rest and refuel stop for weary travellers.

The stomp of boots on wooden floors punctuated with Ahhs that come with that first sip of a well-deserved pint. You’ll feel like you’ve been here before.



If, before you signed up for the West Highland Way, you thought anything less than 3-star was camping, book into the hotel. You’ve earned it.

Running water, comfy beds, fluffy towels, nice smelling toiletries…Hairdryers, drying room, nice food, lovely views, warmth, roaring fires…need we go on? Don’t worry that you’ve got all your gear on – we’ve got a bag store and drying room ,and every bedroom has a boot rack and outdoor clothing rack to hang your many layers on.

Now that you’ve read this, associate the Inveroran to Kingshouse section with the word “cocktail”. Say it every time you think you can’t go any further. Say it. And again. What will it be? How about an Old Fashioned? Or are you more of a Tom Collins kinda person?



If carrying a tent on a 96-mile walk is your thing, well each to their own. There is a nice, flat spot over the footbridge to the rear of the hotel if you are looking to wild camp nearby. Pop into the Way Inn for a drink in the evening or treat your self to a cooked breakfast in the morning.

There are public toilets and showers around the back of our bunkhouse. Whilst the toilets are free, the coin-operated showers cost £1 (don’t forget your towel!). You need to have booked a bunk or hotel room to use the drying room but you are more than welcome to drop in for a bite to eat or drink.

Sometimes all you need is a little hit of roaring fire and a friendly welcome to make you want to get up the next day and do it all over again.
