Start/Finish: Corrour station, Grid ref NN356664
From the station take the main track north-east to the south-western tip of Loch Ossian. Turn L at the track junction and follow the path clockwise around the loch along the wooded northern shore to Corrour Shooting Lodge at the northern end (4.4 miles/7.1km). Continue on the lochside path around the northern end and back along the southern shore to the Hostelling Scotland Loch Ossian Youth Hostel at NN 371670 (7.9 miles/12.8km). Follow the track to meet the outbound route and return to the start.
A great way to access this route is to run in from either Loch Rannoch, Kinlochleven or Dalwhinnie and spend a few days climbing Ben Alder and the surrounding peaks, wild camping or staying at the SYHA.
