Wild line

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - Discover -

Cor­rour on the West High­land Line is the high­est main­line sta­tion in Bri­tain (1338 feet) and the re­motest too, 10 miles from the near­est road in the peak-ringed peat of Ran­noch Moor. You may recog­nise it from

Trainspot­ting and while they barely left the plat­form, Loch Os­sian lies just a mile to the east. Even bet­ter, hop off at Ran­noch* sta­tion to the south and trace trails for 10 miles across the wilds to the loch, stay in the only build­ing (a Scot­tish youth hos­tel) and stroll out to Cor­rour for break­fast at the Sta­tion House, and the morn­ing train.
