West Highland Way: Day 6

Scotlands long distance routes     Stage 5: Tyndrum to Inveroran

After yesterday's rest day, this is a shorter and easier stage; staying on the glen floor after the initial climb from Tyndrum, together with the road and railway, to reach the Bridge of Orchy, with fine views of the steep grassy mountains along the way. From there the route climbs through the woods to cross a low ridge before descending to the lonely hotel at Inveroran (The Inveroran Hotel)



Terrain

Easy walking through the Glens to Bridge of Orchy, then a short climb over a low ridge.
