Those wanting to go walking
without taking a car this winter should consider the Corrour to Rannoch route in the west Highlands, it has been suggested.
In its latest newsletter, the Car Free Walks website said the trek across Rannoch Moor makes for an outstanding hike, with those using Corrour Station being able to enjoy the proximity of a pub and Rannoch Station next to a tea room.
Those experiencing the access from these remote stations in winter may wish to invest in some walking boots
suited to the season, as well as winter jackets
As Rannoch Moor is a large, peaty plateau, it may be easy to get lost when the snow starts falling, so walkers may wish to take Ordnance Survey maps
, compasses and maybe a walking GPS
to ensure they navigate well.
Other places where people may like to walk without using their cars include Edale in the Peak District, whose station serves Manchester and Sheffield, with Kinder Scout and Mam Tor among the nearby hills.
