Great Glen Escape

  • Immerse yourself in the highland landscape on one of Scotland's most renowned trails
  • Discover the historic tow paths of the Caledonian Canal and its impressive series of locks

Known as one of Scotland’s finest long distance walks, the Great Glen Way takes you through beautiful forests, along peaceful working canals, and magnificent brooding lochs. On this short break version of the tour, we have focused on arguably the most scenic part of the walk, from Fort Augustus to Inverness, allowing you to experience the highlights of the Great Glen over 5 days. See fascinating historical sites, such as Urquhart Castle, at one time home to Robert the Bruce, the Caledonian Canal, opened in 1822 and Neptune's Staircase, a feature of its remarkable engineering. The terrain varies from canal towpaths to heather-clad hills and open moorland to quiet forest trails. Revel in the Scottish culture; local pubs and traditional food, and stays in quaint villages within the walk itself, and in bustling towns at the beginning and end of your trip.
