West Highland Way – Day Five

Tyndrum to Kings house – 32km

Heading out of Tydrum the trail climbs up until you reach the top of a pass and the views start really opening up.  Passing over the Bridge of Orchy you head up through a pine forest until it opens up again and you can see down to Loch Tulla and the Iveroran Hotel.  Stopping at the hotel for lunch, tea and lemon cakes was a great way to break up a very long day.

After lunch the trail heads up and into Rannoch Moor, one of the most beautiful wide open landscapes I’ve ever seen.  Every direction you looked had vista’s that were simply jaw dropping.  At the other side of Rannoch Moor the trail makes it’s way to Glencoe and Kings House.

Kings House is currently being renovated so from here taxi’s were taken to the Clachaig Inn in Glencoe.
