What we offer:
Our downloadable West Highland Way Camping Guides will give you all the information you need to plan your own WHW camping adventure. Camping along the West Highland Way is an amazing experience, but it’s not as straightforward as simply pitching your tent at the end of each stage. Our guide eliminates the guesswork about campground locations and available services, making it easy to plan your perfect trip.
Our 50-page guide has everything you need to know to camp on the West Highland Way. From campground locations and services to detailed maps, our guide is the quintessential handbook for WHW campers. Each section provides in-depth information and resources, including:
- A stage-by-stage camping guide
- Detailed maps for every stop
- Tailor-made itinerary for campers (choose from 7-day, 8-day, or 9-day options)
- Custom GPS data for your selected itinerary
- Lodging recommendations
- Getting to/from the WHW
- 15-week training plan
- The ultimate camping packing list
Creating your itinerary is arguably the most important part of planning a successful West Highland Way trek. You need to consider the length of your trip, desired accommodation type, hiking abilities and preferences, budget, and so much more. It can be extremely difficult to find good information out there, especially if you have particular wants or needs for your unique trip. That’s where we can help. We’ll work with you one-on-one to design an itinerary that will meet all of your specific criteria so you can have the best trip ever.
In addition to creating an individualized itinerary, we’ll give you custom GPS data and teach you how to navigate to your specific stopping points along the trail. You’ll get an in-depth 15-week training plan so you can start your trek feeling strong and prepared. We’ll also give you a printable packing list and lend one-on-one support for any questions that come up along the way.
Hi! We’re Emily and Ian, a married couple based in Boulder, CO. We share a passion for the outdoors, touring the globe, and travel planning. So when we discovered the West Highland Way, it was like the universe had conspired to combine all of our favorite things. We first hiked the WHW in the summer of 2018 and completely fell in love with the Highland landscapes, cultures, and the travel experience that can be had with just our feet and our backpacks.
However, in preparing for the trip, we quickly learned that there is a lack of clear, reliable, easy-to-access information out there. We put a LOT of work into planning our own trip, and we wanted to share it with our fellow hikers. Thus, TMBtent.com was born and we haven’t looked back. As we’ve grown the site, we’ve had the opportunity to connect with numerous locals and hikers in order to continually grow our knowledge base.
Nowadays, we are one of the top-ranked West Highland Way resources on the web, and we’re constantly adding and updating our content. In summary, we are just a couple of travel planning enthusiasts who want to help others experience how awesome the WHW can be. We would love to be part of your journey!
