Bridge of Orchy to Kingshouse 20km

 

Day 6: into the higher highlands, more remote, more expansive. 

 

 

 

 

 Lunch break, table with a view.

 

 Did some sketching once we arrived at Kingshouse.

Kingshouse to Kinlochleven 16km


Day 7. I've run out of superlatives. Climbed the infamous "Devils Staircase" and crossed the highest elevation on route. Another clear, blue sky day. I think I could see the CN tower from here.

 

 

The Devil's Staircase. No biggie when you have quads of steel!

Looking back down, steeper than it looks.

 The summit / hers.

The summit / his.

 And now the long descent to Kinlochleven. About 8 km of knee grinding downhill.

 

 Some cairns along the way.

Various accommodation, we stayed in neither.
