The East Highland Way was shortlisted for 'Outdoor Book of the Year' and author, Kevin Langan, was also shortlisted for 'Outdoor Personality of the Year' at the 2012 TGO Magazine Awards.
The East Highland Way is a detailed and descriptive guide to the route developed by Kevin Langan in 2007. Beginning in Fort William and culminating in Aviemore, the trail forms a new link route between the northern end of the West Highland Way and the southern end of the Speyside Way. In addition, the route joins with the Great Glen Way at its southern point in Fort William, making this a new challenge for seasoned walkers and amateurs alike.
Not only an illustrated route description, Langan also details the plethora of wildlife to be spotted along the way in each section of the walk. The book also provides information on the various historical attractions with which the route intersects, including Old Inverlochy Castle and Kingussie’s Ruthven Barracks. Langan’s route has been optimised to engage with accommodation where possible, and these accommodation options are included in the guide.
