West Highland Way and Rob Roy Walkers

Green Shadows Bed and Breakfast offers a warm welcome to walkers. There is a choice of fine walks nearby the B&B, including West Highland Way and Rob Roy Way. We have been awarded the Visit Scotland Walkers Welcome award, recognising Green Shadows additional facilities and special efforts to accommodate walkers.

The B&B provides a free pick up and drop off service from the village of Drymen (we think once you've walked to Drymen - you've done enough on day one of the West Highland Way!). We can arrange drop you off at the start of the WHW Walk on the second day from it's starting point in Drymen. We'll also arrange to drop you off and pick you up if you choose to eat out at one of the village's many restaurants.

Some of the walks within close proximity to the bed and breakfast include:

West Highland Way

Discover the spectacular landscape of Scotland’s western highlands on the West Highland Way. Towering mountains, tranquil lochs and rushing rivers combine to reward you with a unique and ever changing landscape as you journey 96 miles from Milngavie (Glasgow) to Fort William on Scotland's finest long distance walk. The walk passes through Drymen, making Green Shadows the ideal B&B to rest for the night.

Rob Roy Way

Following in the footsteps of the notorious Rob Roy, The Rob Roy Way is an atmospheric, history steeped walk through one of the prettiest parts of Scotland. Travelling the 79 mile long distance path you will be treated to many expansive loch views and exposed to the fantastic landscape of this area. Starting off in Drymen, Green Shadows B&B is perfectly situated to accommodate walkers setting off on Rob Roy Way.

Conic Hill

Conic Hill lies nearby Drymen -  just outside of Balmaha on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond. This walk enables you to enjoy some excellent views of the loch both from above and from the lochside.

The Cobbler

With the most distinctive outline of any mountain in the Southern Highlands, The Cobbler - also known as Ben Arthur -  is an extremely popular and pleasant walk and makes a fantastic short day out.

Ben Lomond

Ben Lomond is one of the most popular Munros, rewarding walkers who make it to the top with fantastic views of the length of Loch Lomond and far into the hills to the north and the Trossachs to the east.
