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
Please note that hillwalking in winter conditions - which is whenever there is snow lying - requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly, and to judge which routes are safe for the conditions and your party in winter. Please see our Winter Essentials for details.
