The Great Glen Way is one of Scotlands Great Trails, and takes walkers from Fort William, in the West to Inverness in the East of Scotland. The route is 73 miles in total and walkers will enjoy much of the route on towpaths, Lochside walking and woodland trails.
The route follows the Caledonian canal, which was built in the Great Glen rift valley. You will walk along Loch Lochy and Loch Ness, where you can enjoy a bit of Nessie spotting.
There are also various opportunities to scout a bit of higher ground for some elevated views and some added challenges.
