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.
