Another fine short walk. We like to do this kind of walk when the weather looks not good for a hill walk or our legs need a little rest from the strenuous ups an downs.
Starting from Kinlochleven this walk goes trough a fine Woodland to the picturesque Grey Mare's Waterfall.
After enjoying the scenery we went on walk up to the Mamore Lodge. This part of the walk goes steep uphill and gives some nice views to Loch Leven.
From the highest point, the Marmor Lodge, the path descend first on a little road before returning to Kinlochleven on a part of the Westhighland Way. The way down from Marmore Lodge is easy to walk but have no really highlights.
In summary a good walk for a more lazy day and Grey Mare's Waterfall is worth a visit.
