This delightful route links Fort William, resting under the watchful eye of Britain’s highest mountain Ben Nevis, with Inverness, following the major natural fault line of the Great Glen which bisects Scotland from coast to coast.
Novice walkers will be pleased to hear that the route is pretty much at low level along woodland tracks and the towpaths of the Caledonian Canal, so it offers a great introduction to highland and long distance walking. There a few steeps climbs though and munros (Meall na Teanga and Sron a'Choire Ghairbh) to bag for the more adventurous walker.
Whatever your ability, the Great Glen Way is a walking feast skirting loch shores (including along the world-famous Loch Ness), passing through heather moorland, farmland and crofting communities and even serving up castles at Invergarry, Inverlochy and Inverness.
