West of Drumochter 4 Munro’s -Walk back to Balsporran


Postby Stokesy75 » Thu Aug 27, 2020 7:16 pm

Planning on an early start on the 4 West of Drumochter on Sat morning ,as I’ll finish 4km south of the parking at Balsporran ,my question is-Is it safe enough to walk the 4km back to the parking area? Solo trip so no option for two cars this time.

Yep as said above a nice cycle path, most of the path has a barrier beside you and the road but sometimes it'll get quite close to the 60mph road beside you but nothing too worrysome. Would recommend dropping a bike off if possible as its smooth tarmac.

Also to remember there is only one way to cross the train tracks before you rejoin the A9 so make sure you hit it.
