Beinn na Lap (935m / 3068 ft), Corrour Station, Central Highlands, Scotland

Summary

 

A walk up the only Munro in Scotland that is best accessed by train, in a remote location in the Central Highlands overlooking Loch Ossian and bleak Rannoch Moor.

Corrour Station may be isolated, but it offers a good meal at the end of a hillwalk!

It's by a new contributor to Walking Stories, Neil Kitching, who climbed it with the rest of his family.
