The West Highland Way is famous the world over for the opportunity to enjoy the varied wild landscapes of Scotland and is the country’s best loved long distance walking route.

Our 20 mile section of the West Highland Way begins in Milngavie and will take us through the woodlands of Mugdock Country Park and along the west side of Craigallan Loch.loch lomond

The next section of the route has stunning views of the Campsie Fells before reaching the outskirts of Drymen and then through Garadhban Forest and onwards to Conic Hill, which sits on the Highland Boundary Fault Line.

We will then cross into the Highlands and enjoy views over Loch Lomond, before descending into Balmaha to finish the route.

Places are limited for this new event, so don’t delay and sign up HERE (please read the terms and conditions HERE before completing your registration.)

As places are limited, we are asking all participants to raise a minimum of £250 in sponsorship for the Foundation (excluding the registration fee), which will automatically make you a True Blue Hero and earn you an invite to one of our special receptions to receive a True Blue Hero medal from a First team player!

The Foundation would like to thank Park’s for providing a free coach from Ibrox Stadium to Milngavie and for the return journey back to Ibrox after the challenge.

  • Meet at Ibrox Stadium at 7.30am on Saturday 1 June, with the walk starting at approximately 8.30am
  • We would encourage participants to wear their Rangers gear so we can turn the route blue for the day!
