The trail rises gently from Inveroran to Rannoch Moor, a wild and wonderful part of the West Highland Way.
Hailed as one of the last great wildernesses of Europe, Rannoch Moor is a picturesque place to find yourself, especially in good conditions. Bleak, yet beautiful; you will experience an unrivaled sense of isolation here.
However, do take care if the weather is bad as the moorland is extremely exposed. Ensure you have the right clothing, navigational equipment and food and water supplies.
Halfway across the moor, you cross Ba Bridge. If the weather is fine, this makes for a great place to stop for a moment and take in the scenery.
The old military road passes the Glencoe Ski Centre, where you can get some refreshment should you need it, and the picturesque Black Rock Cottage.
A short time later, you arrive at one of Scotland’s most photographed mountains, Buachaille Etive Mor. The imposing mountain fills this Glencoe landscape spectacularly; watching over the surrounding moors.
You finish for the day in Kingshouse. There is only one hotel here, The Kingshouse Hotel and Bunkhouse. If you do not fancy that, there is plenty of wild camping to be had in the area. For more information, visit: kingshousehotel.co.uk.
