I'm doing the walk later this month (April 2016). I'm sure the book will come in handy.

Got this in preparation for my trip in 2010 to mark my 50th Birthday!!! It is a great book filled with informative information about the walk. I am looking forward to using it on my trip. It is small and compact and easy to carry in my pack...

My wife and I just finished walking the West Highland Way, using the 2011 (3rd) edition of the Cicerone guide book by Terry Marsh. The prose is a little florid, with some extraneous observations/information. Also, less accommodation info is included than earlier versions (the stated reason being that the internet can supply that need, which I disagree with ... would have liked to have some such info in the guidebook appendix, as in the past). That said, this book, with its ordinance survey map, is very adequate, and is the only book/map you will need to do the WHW, especially since the trail itself is well marked. It is compact and relatively weatherproof. Note that the daily stopping points in the book are recommendations; we found others workable, especially since for some reason the Kings House area has such an inadequate number of rooms. Great photographs. By the way, the WTW is a scenic and worthwhile walk, but can be difficult in parts due to rocky trails and uphills.

We just completed walking the Way and were extremely disappointed in this guide. Despite this being the 3rd edition I was shocked at the egregious errors, poor maps, and lack of useful information. If your goal is to actually walk the West Highland Way this is not the book for you. Please do not waste your money and end up in the same situation we did. Instead, go with an alternative.
