Try Rannoch Moor, walkers urged
Bookmark and Share
Those fancying putting on their walking boots and finding somewhere really wild can discover it on Rannoch Moor in the west Highlands, it has been suggested.

In an article in the winter edition of the British Mountaineering Council's magazine Summit, Tim Woods of Car Free Walks recommended the location for its "untamed, remote nature".

Noting that it can be reached via train at Rannoch Station (on the Glasgow to Fort William line), Mr Woods stated that it should "not be taken lightly" as it is both boggy and a place where it is easy to get lost in mist.

Such factors may prompt those thinking of visiting to ensure they have invested in water-resistant men's walking boots or women's walking boots, while a walking GPS may be crucial in helping to navigate.

Those stocking up on equipment may also wish to get a walking pole or two, which could help when taking on other challenges in the area.

Just north of the peaty expanse of Rannoch Moor lies the craggy mountains of Glencoe, where those such devices may be useful for getting up and down Munros like Buchaille Etive Mor, Stob Coire Sgreamhach and Bidean nam Bian.
