GREAT GLEN WAY

Fort William to Inverness. 78 miles.

Charmed lochs, pine forests, heather moors and the Caledonian Canal in this popular traverse of the Great Glen Fault.

Fort William – Laggan Locks

Great Glen Way - Day 1 - 23 Miles

 

"...Here the Way meanders through sparse birch, Scots pine and oak copses, panoramas of the fjord-like Lochy just a few steps away from the many beaches..." 

Laggan Locks – Invermoriston

Great Glen Way - Day 2 - 21.4 miles

"...Walkers are whisked above the tree line after a steep zig-zag ascent onto the airy tops for big views over Loch Ness – a lake of staggering scale even from up high..." 

Invermoriston – Drumnadrochit

Great Glen Way - Day 3 - 14.3 miles

"...So down into Drumnadrochit – a town with a name that sounds like a cross between an expletive and a complex metalworking tool. If there's a spiritual home to Nessie, it is here. Every other shop has monster branding or a monstrous name..." 

Drumnadrochit – Inverness

Great Glen Way - Day 4 - 19.7 miles
