Scotland’s West Highland Way Trek Day 7: Kings House Hotel to Kinlochleven: 9 miles

After yesterday’s nasty rainy day, we hoped for a better forecast.  However, the morning didn’t look or feel all that promising so we bundled up preparing for the worst…

In the morning the hike took us towards the infamous devils staircase, the steepest climb of the route.

The second half of our day took us down the other side on trails that were a bit rocky from time to time, towards Kinlochleven.

Some trails rockier than others…

Eventually the trails smoothed out and we made it to the cute town of Kinlochleven and to our B&B shown in the photo below.

Later that evening, we headed into town to the local pub for dinner, where Pam found herself in heaven.  Dogs are a big part of the pub life in Scotland.  They are just as welcome as the humans!

Until then,

Keep on Trekking!
