Tyndrum to Inveroran

Before setting off from Tyndrum it is worth remembering that this is the last chance to stock up on any necessities – there are no more shops until Kinlochleven, 28 miles further up the Way!

This section of the route offers some up close and personal views of the surrounding mountains. Soon after leaving Tyndrum you will skirt the steep sides of Beinn Odhar and the pyramid of Beinn Dorain sits ahead, a companion all the way across the floor of the glen until you reach Bridge of Orchy.

The railway will peel off to the right and you’ll see another viaduct showcasing the engineering skills of the West Highland Railway Line.

From here the glen widens and flattens with a gentle descent down to the railway station and views across to Glen Orchy.

After Bridge of Orchy the way joins the Old Military Road. A short climb up the hill gives a dramatic viewpoint across Loch Tulla and the Black Mount. Beyond Inveroran, the remote Rannoch Moor beckons.
