Fort William and Glen Coe

Beyond the end of the road

Anyone who's spent more than a couple of days in the Fort William area will know Glen Nevis. They'll also know that the best short walk around is to park at the very end of the glen and continue down the gorge to the meadow, the waterfall and the wire bridge.

Walk 5: Nevis Gorge and Steall Falls

dragonfly.pngI've walked this way three or four times in the past, but was very happy to do it again today. We walked as far as the Steall ruins and looked up towards Aonach Beag. We'll be back this way sometime and climb that hill, continuing on its ridge to Aonach Mòr which we started climbing from the other side last year.

I also know I'll return but from the opposite direction. I want to get off the train at Corrour on the edge of Rannoch Moor and walk the fifteen miles up the glen to this point.

We'll be back.
