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 approximately 13.5 km from Inveroran.

Équipement conseillé

Sturdy hiking boots, warm clothes and a waterproof/wind-break layer are all required. The weather can change quickly so be sure to take all equipment even if the weather looks okay. A waterproof cover for your rucksack is also useful. 

Ensure your phone is fully charged; if you doubt the battery will last throughout the hike, it would be beneficial to bring a power bank.

Itinéraire

*** To help you follow the route with confidence we provide these route notes to help you. The West Highland Way is well waymarked, but we strongly suggest that you follow the GPS tracks in the Macs Adventure smartphone app to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem-free day.  The daily maps can also be printed from the web version of the app should you wish to take paper copies with you. ***

 

From Inveroran Hotel and follow the single-track road, taking care of traffic as you follow this quiet country road for 1.50 km. At Forest Lodge, where river flows into Loch Tulla, the Way picks up an old Drove Road and continues along the base of the Black Mount Munros before crossing the edge of the Rannoch Moor and winding its way between small lochans to cross the Ba Bridge.  The scenery on this section of the West Highland Way is spectacular even on cloudy days the low light lends a special moodiness to the ancient landscape. 

After Ba Bridge ascend slightly on a good path keeping a look out for the pyramidal peak of the much photographed and iconic mountain of Buachaille Etive Mor (“meaning Great Herdsman of Etive”). The sheer dark grey face boasts a multitude of popular traditional rock-climbing routes, while hillwalkers normally approach the ascent from the north on a well-built and less intimidating path.  The Way skirts the base of Meall Bhuiridh (1108m), the Munro that’s home to the Glencoe Ski Centre.  At 13.70 km turn right to walk down the minor road leading up to the ski centre, and with great care cross the A82 (this is a busy road with a speed limit of 60 mph) to continue on the trail towards Kingshouse. 

Approach Kingshouse Hotel from the SE, pass the bunk houses and head into the hotel for some well-earned rest, recuperation, and refreshments after a long day on the trail!
