West Highland Way 6: Inveroran to Kings House

The crossing of Rannoch Moor is one of the classic stages of the West Highland Way, following the line of Telford's Parliamentary Road across an otherwise vast wilderness of heather and bog encircled by grand mountains. In fine weather this is a place of otherworldly beauty - in a storm it is wild, forbidding and exposed. Underfoot conditions are easy and some may opt to continue to Kinlochleven.


Good tracks; easy walking in fine weather but very exposed if conditions are poor.

Public Transport

None to Inveroran; the A82 is served by Citylink buses between Glasgow and Fort William.
