The Cruachan Horseshoe is so good it gets its own station - the Falls of Cruachan, a request stop on the line between Oban and Crianlarich. A circuit of the horseshoe, which includes two Munroes, is a fine day out, with much of the route along a high-level ridge. This connects the six peaks that surround the Cruachan Reservoir, which was built to provide water for the power station. The high point is Ben Cruachan, reaching an impressive 1126m.
