This is a linear, level 3 walk, of just over 20 km between Victoria Bridge and the Glencoe Ski Centre taking in four Munros.
The Clachet Traverse is a name given to a high level route from Victoria Bridge to Glencoe, crossing the peaks of The Black Mount. The feeling of isolation in this wild land is fantastic with views that may not be seen if you tackle these peaks by their more traditional hillwalking routes. Very little in the way of paths links the four Munros of Stob a' Choire Odhair, Stob Ghabhar, Creise and Meall a' Bhuiridh and there is steep ground and a short section of narrow ridge to cross.
We will meet at the large public car park beside the Bridge of Orchy Hotel, Bridge of Orchy, PA36 4AD. If we have more than one car, we will then take one or more to Glencoe Ski Centre before returning to the Hotel. The drive from the Hotel round to Victoria Bridge is about 15 minutes on a single track road.
The Hotel offers accommodation, a public bar and restaurant and I've enjoyed more than one cream tea here over the years! It can be a busy Hotel, despite its isolation, it sits on the route of the West Highland Way. Other accommodation can be found in nearby Tyndrum which offers camping and a Hostel at the By The Way www.tyndrumbytheway.com/
Cost is only £35 per person (maximum group size is 8)
