Blackwater Reservoir, Kinlochleven
This circuit explores the industrially-exploited but today very beautiful and peaceful Glen Leven, including a visit to the bleak Blackwater Dam.
Good paths and tracks for most of the walk. There are a few boggy sections and the section of the walk below the dam is pathless and rough.
Regular buses to Kinlochleven from Fort William.
