This was a great walk

Nice walk if you are looking for a short walk. Paths quite narrow and have been created by people just walking the trail. Can imagine the path can be quite slippy when it is poor weather

Good walk, white bridge is out, so you have to walk the green bridge route (longer route)

Great trail for a bit of adventure. Follow the map through the off trial paths to find all the hidden gem spots around the Forrest! Good walk for kids & dogs.

Vi gik denne tur sidste år i juli, det er en fantastisk smuk tur og en imellem hård. det er turen for alle der kan lide smuk natur, lidt sved på panden. og når man nu er i fort William, skal man da ud og køre med "Harry Potter tog"

Brutal

Lovely wee walk dog friendly. A steep walk to the top where the waterfall is but worth it.

Wow, my husband and I literally could not believe a trail like this is available for everyone to enjoy. Quite the magical place and easy route makes it extremely enjoyable.

Very enjoyable walk! We walked up in January on quite a sunny day, going left at the start. My friend lost his phone when he fell on slipped on the way down one of the hills, but managed to find it again and all that time it took, by the time we got to the next Munro, the sun was setting and it was beautiful. I stated to get a bit worried because the sun was going down and the way down looked very steep(It is) but my friends were content with sliding on some ice. But thank goodness we left when we did as the small path down was covered in Black ice, if we left any later one of us would surely have injured ourselves. That being said probably a better idea to not turn off to the left at the start and do the walk the other way round.

I love this walk, have done it around 4 times now with my other half and dog. Its relatively easy until you hit the 'main' road up to Drymen, then it gets steep but its not for so long. Stunning scenery all along it.

I enjoyed it lots good views

Found this place while just driving around while on vacation. There is a road to the right that a lot of people were hiking, so I assumed that was the right trail. I think that was just a service road and/or a bike trail. It never really seemed to to turn into a legitimate hiking trail. I never saw an outlook either. There is a trail to the left of the sign at the trailhead that looked more like a hiking trail. I wish I’d had more time to venture that way, but I didn’t get there till pretty late and even later after I looped the service road. Then, I wasn’t prepared for night hiking.

A great walk to the West of Edinburgh bordering the zoo with fabulous views to the City and The Castle etc and all corners of The Lothians.

I hiked this section back in October 2015, while living in Edinburgh. It was a really fun hike. My buddy and I "wild camped" as they call it there just outside of Kinlochleven and about halfway up Ben Nevis. On the recommendation of some other hikers (some RAF guys doing a charity walk), we took the trail that goes around to the north face of Ben Nevis. The trail is roughly a third of the way up the main trail to the summit. We camped the second night near a small loch on the north trail. We tried to go to the top of Ben Nevis the next day but didn't find the trail going up in time and had to hike down to Fort William. The trail overall is pretty easy and flat until Ben Nevis, and the hike up isn't too grueling with a full pack. Highly recommend this trail. Both Kinlochleven and Fort William are nice towns to stay in, and Scots are really nice people.

Nice for a run or walk. Fairly flat. Dry paths. Large majority covered by trees. Very enjoyable on a nice day.

We did the hike clockwise. Quite steep off the bat all the way to the peak. It got increasingly more windy as we approached the top to where we could barely stand in some parts. In general the hike had everything - challenging parts, easier portions, parts in tree cover, parts exposed, and wonderful views all around. I would love to do this hike again soon. Highly recommend.
