The deserted Rannoch Moor is a dramatic backdrop for your walk from Rannoch station to the mountain pass of Glencoe.

The emptiness of Rannoch Moor is beguiling. A big sky landscape of marsh, rivers, and lochs populated only by deer. Your walk follows an ancient right of way, which cunningly finds a route through the beautiful emptiness of the landscape. The Kingshouse Hotel, sitting picture perfect in front of Buachaille Etive Mor, marks the end of your day’s walk. 

Due to high demand throughout the summer season there may not be space in the Kingshouse Hotel - your accommodation list will tell you how your transfer from Kingshouse to Glencoe works if you are staying in Glencoe village.
