I love exploring Lochaber. As well as the peaks and Munros, there are lots of hidden lochs and valleys to explore. It's wild, wet and relatively unexplored. This trip can be done in a long day, or there are sleeping options at Corryhully bothy or Glenfinnan station. Note there is a river crossing right in the middle; if the streams on the way in are overflowing, consider turning back!
