In Scotland, the West Highland Way is a famous Scottish trail that leads you along the (bonny) banks of Loch Lomond.

The most popular and flashy hike to complete is crossing the whole country starting at Lands End and finishing at John O Groats. The beauty of this hike is that you can follow any route you like, as long as you start in the right place. Be warned though, this hike will take more than a week. Mark Moxon’s site gives a great overview of one potential route.
