Tyndrum to Bridge of Orchy (return via train)

A very pleasant walk along parts of the West Highland Way - following much of the railway line to Fort William. Views of Beinn Dorain along the way - along with the stunning landscape of Glen Achadh-Innis up towards Loch Lyon. At Bridge of Orchy we plan to catch the train back to Tyndrum ( will travel on part of this historic railway line over the famous Auch viaduct). Walk timings are inevitably governed by the train timings (to be confirmed once new timetable published).

A low level walk following the route of the West Highland Way from the village of Tyndrum to Bridge of Orchy.  The well surfaced path follows the West Highland railway line and takes in the Auch viaduct.  The latter part of the walk leads below the spectacular pyramid hill that is Beinn Dorain   The walk passes through a very pictureque part of Southern Grampian mountains between Strath Fillan and Rannoch Moor.  At Bridge of Orchy we will catch the train back to Tyndrum ( will travel on part of this historic railway line over the famous Auch viaduct). Walk timings are inevitably governed by the train timings (to be confirmed once new timetable published).

None specified.

None specified.

1. Risk.
The nature of hill walking potentially involves leaders or other participants in providing close assistance to others. For everybody’s protection those people classified as ‘vulnerable adults’ or young people under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an appropriate carer or responsible adult. No special arrangements are available to provide independent supervision for vulnerable people, and the accompanying carer takes full responsibility for them. The carer or parent is best placed to judge the capability of their charges.

2. Children.
We do ask that you only bring children on a walk if you are confident that they will be able to complete it comfortably. At all times, children must be accompanied by an appropriate adult who must take full responsibility for them.

3. Lower age limits.
No children under the age of 16 are allowed on Extra Hard or Hard walks. Children over the age of 12 are permitted on Medium and Easy walks provided that they are accompanied by a responsible adult.

4. Dogs.
In common with other similar events and in consideration for others, dogs are not allowed (guide dogs excepted).

5. Smoking.
Please do not smoke on walks, out of consideration to others.
