Not The West Highland Way
Day 6: Tyndrum – Bridge of Orchy – King’s House
Tuesday 29th May 2018
Distance: 20 miles [view on map]
After a day of (mostly) rest, I felt re-energised, as I continued along the official West Highland Way route on old military roads. I passed a number of groups on the way to Bridge of Orchy where I planned to have lunch at the hotel. I was early so had coffee instead, then marched on to the Inveroran Hotel over the hill for lunch in the hikers bar. Most people I spoke to had a long day ahead: they were headed to Glen Coe or King’s House and I decided to do the same.
I stopped at Glen Coe Ski Centre / Mountain Resort in the evening for dinner, a beer, a shower, and to recharge my phone. I then walked on past the King’s House (being re-built) to camp on Rannoch Moor.
This was the most social day, as I met the same groups at the various pub / cafe stops along the way (typically passing them between each stop as my strategy was to spend as much time as possible out of the hot sun).
