A 3-day hike, to the most remote pub in mainland Britain, with easy public transport connections. What more could you want?

Walk down to the Loch, see where Bonnie Prince Charlie met the clan chieftans. There is quite a camp statue of him here.

See, told you. Would you follow this man into battle? Anyway, onwards to the viaduct.

Very nice. Famous for all sorts of reasons, among them Harry Potter and appearing on banknotes.

Has electricity, which is not in keeping with the spartan bothy ideal, in my opinion. Also, as it is still close to the train line and road, you may end up sleeping with a stag night. Walk on.

Don't be tempted to skirt around these woods, as we were. Nearly drowned in the bog. Unpleasant.

No bothy here, despite several references to one on t'internet. I found this out at around 9pm. Camped instead.

Leave the River Dessary, take right hand pathway.

Possibly the windiest place I have ever been. Had a discussion with my nephew about why he didn't build one of his frigging wind turbines here. He gave some fatuous arguments about why it wouldn't work, and I decided that it was time to move on.

Now, this is a nice place. Not a very good water supply, however.

Unbelievably beautiful glen, misty and atmospheric.

As it says. My nephews, who had sneered at my walking poles on day one, were fighting over them by now.

Fantastic views down to Inverie. Good lunch spot, bit of wind to keep the midgies away, and a clean running stream. Bliss.

Looked interesting, but, frankly, by now, the pub is calling.
Hostel About 2.10 km (~1.3 miles) from

I reccomend this place over the campsite. After that walk you deserve to be out of the midgies.
