A wonderful, gentle run on good paths around a stunning loch in a remote and spectacular location. From Corrour railway station, run along a dirt track following signposts east towards Tulloch, aiming for the Youth Hostel on the shores of the loch. From here, follow the path that loops the loch in either direction. The path provides great running on firm ground with some rougher, muddier terrain on the southern shore. This route is accessible only by a scenic train ride to Corrour Station. Accommodation is available at the SYHA Loch Ossian Hostel, from where there are many miles of trails and hills to explore. Much of the surrounding terrain is wet and boggy, but nonetheless this is enjoyable running in a fantastic location.
