The West Highland Way 7 – Altnafeadh to Kinlochleven

Rain, rain rain.  Day seven was another perpetually drenched walk through the Highlands.  This day in particular I recall being especially soggy.  So soggy in fact that I cut the day short when I reached Kinlochleven at around 2pm.  The day began well in Altnafeadh, with a foggy yet surprisingly mild and dry morning.  Altnafeadh […]
