Day 23 & 24 – Kinlochleven to Fort William

Day 23 & 24 – Kinlochleven to Fort William

Incase you haven’t notice, it is a real pleasure to be walking the world famous West Highland Way, which before this walk I never really heard of. Today is the last day on the trail & as much as I have enjoyed it I look forward to leaving the tourists behind, and carry on the adventure on less visited trails.

The weather is moody & cloud mists past the tops of the munros. On exit of Kinlochleven, the guidebook said nothing about a leg breaking ascent. However, some views over the loch leven are savoured like a piece of dark chocolate.

Not to discredit what is around me, the majestic munros, the lochs, the glens. There is a mumour in my eye, the pennine way whispers ‘come back, come back’ And I must say, the pennine way left me with memories which will forever be with me.

Todays walk feels beautiful & bland at the same time. Bopping through the valleys eventually reaching the bottom of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Great Britain. The clouds make the beast hard too see, however its grandness is still felt from afar. The walk today is easy, well pathed, nots to many ups and downs & some nice forest walking towards the end. A long awaited rest day follows exploring Fort William
