We descend into the desolate expanse of Rannoch Moor, passing the Black Mount, Fort William and Ben Nevis - Scotland Tourto the dramatic Glencoe, made famous by the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan. Enjoy a leisurely walk here before continuing north towards Fort William and Scotland's highest mountain, Ben Nevis.
