    The final stage of the West Highland Way begins with a very steep climb out of Kinlochleven which is guaranteed to blow away the cobwebs and get the blood pumping for Fort William.


    The challenging section ascends 700 feet (213 m) in one mile (1.5 km), before easing off and rewarding you with views back
