<p>The Devil’s Staircase was initially given its name by the soldiers who were part of the road building programme of General Wade. The carrying of building materials up that stretch of the road was not popular! The name was perpetuated when some of the workers building the Blackwater Dam chose to travel to the nearest pub after their wages had been paid out. For the workers at Kinlochleven the journey to the Kingshouse Hotel proved to be more difficult than many realised. The journey back was even worse as unsteady legs meant that many were unable to manage the return trip and, on a cold winter’s night, the devil often ”claimed his own“.<br />
<br />
There is a signpost at Altnafeadh indicating the West Highland Way over to Kinlochleven. The path is very clear and soon rises above the plain of Rannoch Moor. The path zigzags as it climbs the steepest part at which point the views of the moor and of the mountains surrounding it are well worth taking in.</p>			<p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/39301333@N05/">blootoonloon1( No to Badger Cull)</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>A trip up to the Hills to see how the Hares are doing with coming into their winter coats, Some more advanced than others. Rained for the whole 4 hours and Red deer were other side of the stream so maybe earlier rise next time.</p>			<p><a href="http://www.flickr.com/people/29904651@N07/">Crisp-13</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>Another trip to the Highlands and another visit to see these lovely little birds. I have now 3 -4 places to photograph these in the wild with no hides.

<p>In the time it took for me to walk from the bus stop in the High Street, down St. Mary's Street and up the stairs to my flat, the sunshine had disappeared and heavy stormclouds had closed in again, but there was still no sign of any hurricanes at this point. This was the view from my kitchen window. 16th October, 2017.</p>
