#9 - West Highland Way Day 6

From the longest day, to the shortest...
At last, we were in Glencoe for part of this leg; unfortunately, the weather meant we missed the stunning scenery we had witnessed the day before on the drive to our hostel! Once again, on the military road, to Altnafeadh where we ascended the zig zag section known as the Devil's Staircase, to the highest point on the trail, at 564 metres.
From here, we walked down to Kinlochleven.. job done, and all by 1.30pm!
Accommodation at the Glencoe Youth Hostel.
