After passing the isolated Inveroran hotel, walk across the Rannoch Moor and look upon Scotland's most iconic mountain: Buachaille Etive Mor.

Arguably the most scenic section of the West Highland Way; leave Inveroran and skirt Loch Tulla before joining the track across Rannoch Moor - a wonderful, lonely and exposed place that was once covered by a giant icecap and is today covered in bog. There is no shelter and in bad weather it can be exposed, whilst in good weather Rannoch Moor is simply inspiring. The 17th century Kingshouse Hotel affords the best views of Buachaille Etive Mor, Scotland’s most photographed mountain. 

 

Glencoe: If you are staying in Glencoe then a transfer from Glencoe Ski Centre Car Park to nearby accommodation in Glencoe (returning to Kingshouse the next day) will be provided. Please check your individual trip information to find out what your transfer arrangements are.  

To reach the ski centre turn off the WHW left onto the minor road up to the ski centre approximaely 13.5 km from Inveroran.

We had a good day today the weather was in our favour misty, but not raining. The trail was totally as advertised and we took time to appreciate our surroundings.
