The tiny, remote, railway station at Corrour, famously shown in the film Trainspotting, really is a cracking spot to spend a weekend in the hills. With no public road access, walking in or the train are our only options. The fantastic off-grid Loch Ossian Youth Hostel is a 20 minute walk from the station and will be our base for the weekend. We have a 12 person dormitory booked for our private use the evenings of 30th and 31st July 2021. Please note the Youth Hostel is self catering so you will need to bring your food. You will also need a towel, there are none available to hire. More information about the Hostel here.
Simplest access from the East of the country is from Rannoch Station. From here it's only a short 10 minute train ride north to the next stop, Corrour. If coming from the West, the closest hop on is at Upper Tyndrum Station and it takes about an hour to get to Corrour.
We hope that you can join us on Friday evening but if you prefer to arrive early on Saturday morning, we will be leaving the Youth Hostel at 0930.
The nearby (well, 20 minute walk) Corrour Station House cafe serves food and we have a provisional booking for the Saturday evening, should you wish to dine out, rather than self cater in the Youth Hostel.
Saturday morning we will head out and tackle Sgor Gaibhre and Carn Dearg in a nice easy circular route and pop into the recently refurbished Corrour Station House cafe for a coffee. Back to the Youth Hostel for our overnight, remember to bring your own rations for the weekend and I'm sure there will be a wee tipple and a blether.
Sunday morning, depending on train times, up sharp and out to tackle the easy Beinn Na Lap which is only 7 km and 550m ascent right out the back of the Youth Hostel. Return and checkout before getting the train home.
A lovely relaxed weekend in a beautiful, remote setting, taking in the Munros at a leisurely pace.
