Walk Great Glen Way Scotland

Walk Great Glen Way Scotland

Walk Great Glen Way, Scotland. The Great Glen is one of the most remarkable features in the Scottish landscape - a ruler-straight valley along an ancient fault line through the Highlands. The glen is threaded by the scenic Caledonian Canal, which links Loch Lochy and Loch Oich with the famous Loch Ness. The Great Glen Way offers walkers the chance to enjoy a low-level route from coast to coast, between Fort William and Inverness, at almost any time of the year. The Great Glen Way measures 117km (73 miles) and its course includes easy, level stretches alongside the Caledonian Canal, undulating forest tracks, lakeside paths, old drove roads and military roads, as well as contrasting stretches over heather moorlands or through city suburbs. The route is an ideal introduction to long-distance walking, with a range of facilities along the way. Walkers can enjoy the scenery and wildlife, delve into the history of the Highland clans, visit crumbling castles, or keep an eye open to spot the elusive Loch Ness Monster.
