This is Scottish car-free walking at its finest. The two peaks of Stob a' Choire Mheadhoin and Stob Choire Easain sit south of Tulloch Station on the West Highland Railway. This walk offers amazing views over Loch Treig as you climb, and from the second summit you can see down to Corrour Station and Rannoch Moor. A walk right in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.
