The Wild-West Highland Way #5
Friday 2nd MayTyndrum To Kingshouse (Glencoe) – 18.5 Miles No problem sleeping last night and we woke early, as planned, and went up to the Little Chef for breakfast.

Thursday 1st MayInverarnan to Tyndrum – 12 Miles This morning broke clear, bright and warm. We could hear the Mare’s Tail waterfall gushing across the valley and looked forward to the prospect of good day’s walking. Jenny was nowhere to be seen this morning, so Frank was left to do us all breakfast. “Fry-ups all […]

Sunday 4th MayKinlochleven to Fort William – 15 Miles I awoke at about five o’clock in the morning, the gentle sound of rain clattering fiercely against the window.

The Wild-West Highland Way #6
Saturday 3rd MayKingshouse to Kinlochleven – 9 Miles The sun was streaming through the windows this morning when we woke up. I made my way into the conservatory that is part of the breakfast area, and marvelled at the view. The tops of the mountains had mist streaming off them like spindrift, almost emulating Everest. […]
