Kinlochleven Ciaran Path 4 mountain bike route

There is a graveyard at the foot of Blackwater Dam, high above Kinlochleven. It is the final resting place for many of the navvies who built the dam; those who succumbed to the primitive conditions and unimaginably hard Scottish winters.
When the heavy Highland cloud descends and you look out over the bleak and inky expanse of the Blackwater reservoir, few places can match it for a sense of foreboding. It is worth taking a moment, up there, to imagine the daily toil and the relentless misery before you set off down the hill. Why? Because few trails polarise opinion like the Ciaran Path. For some it is the essence of a wild, natural trial. For the rest, it is a day in hell. And while it is unquestionably tough, it is a walk in the park compared the navvies & brutal existence.
