Loch Ossian Munros and CorbettsBest reached by a train journey, the remote area surrounding Loch Ossian is a delight to hike and explore in.
Main route summary
If you feel like an easier day that doesn't involve hiking up Munros or Corbetts, then a walk around Loch Ossian on the flat track encircling it is highly recommended.
The estate has seen significant investment over recent years with the track from Rannoch recently upgraded and now cyclable. Before getting the train back, finish the day off with a bite to eat at Corrour Restaurant by the train-halt.
