Check out the Spring 2011 issue of the excellent Scotland Outdoors magazine (published March 7) for an article I wrote on Rannoch Moor. The piece is a portrait of this, a true area of wilderness.
Having written and filed the feature, I was inspired to explore the moor some more and I set off tomorrow to hike from Bridge of Orchy to Corrour. While crossing the moor itself is, due to the terrain, a virtually impossible task, I plan to follow the West Highland Way from Bridge of Orchy to Kings House, where I will spend my first night.
I will then follow the track east to Rannoch Station, skirting the edge of the moor, and pick up the old Road to the Isles for the final leg to Corrour via Loch Ossian. Fingers crossed for good weather and three days of excellent walking!
