Scotland's Highlands & Islands - Southern Highlands & West Highland Way (Chapter)
This is the Southern Highlands & West Highland Way chapter from Lonely Planet’s Scotland’s Highlands & Islands guidebook.
Here, sea travel is as important as road and rail - dozens of ferries allow you to island-hop your way from the Firth of Clyde to Oban and beyond, via the whisky distilleries of Islay, the wild mountains of Jura and the scenic delights of diminutive Colonsay.
- walk the West Highland Way around the edge of Loch Lomond
- watch the yachts in the Firth of Clyde while strolling along the promenade at Dunoon
- restaurants & accommodation
- appreciate the spiritual atmosphere that pervades the sacred Isle of Iona
