A beautiful section of the Way and one our favourites at Macs - this route variation will take you from Inveroran straight to the Macs Adventure shuttle to Glencoe pick-up point.
***If you aren't using the shuttle / are overnighting at Kingshouse / or aren't stopping at Kingshouse please use the Inveroran to Kingshouse route for this section of the Way.***
Arguably one of the most scenic sections along the West Highland Way; leave Inveroran and skirt Loch Tulla before joining the track across Rannoch Moor - a wonderful, lonely and exposed place that was once covered by a giant icecap and is today covered in bog. There is no shelter and in bad weather it can be exposed, whilst in good weather Rannoch Moor is simply inspiring.
On reaching Black Rock Cottage in front of the Buachaille Etive Mor (Stob Dearg) mountain on the Rannoch Moor the route diverts briefly from the WHW to reach the Macs Adventure shuttle bus pick-up point in the Glencoe Ski Centre Cafe - you only need to use this service if listed on your accommodation sheet and you are staying in Glencoe village rather than Kingshouse Hotel.
In the Glencoe Ski Centre car park look out for the sign telling you when the next Macs Adventure shuttle bus will be leaving for Glencoe. Alternatively, the minibus itself may already be there, if so hop on and enjoy a scenic drive through the legendary Glencoe valley to reach your night’s accommodation.
The shuttle driver has a list of everyone who will be on the shuttle each day. If you think you won’t make it for the 17:30 deadline please call either the driver directly (+44 7968 248 508), or the Macs Adventure office with plenty of notice. In this case, the driver may wait or we can organise a taxi.
To reach Glencoe Ski Centre & Café from the Way:
The WHW path joins a minor road near Black Rock Cottage - at this point turn left onto the minor road and walk towards the ski centre car park. The ski centre has a small restaurant and café, overlooking the Rannoch Moor, so if you have time before the next shuttle we recommend enjoying refreshments here before your journey to Glencoe.
