Walking Tours on The Great Glen Way
The Great Glen Way (79 miles), one of Scotland's Great Trails, follows the famous Caledonian Canal from Fort William to Inverness via Loch Ness. A relaxed hike taking you along forest paths and up heather-clad hillsides overlooking Loch Ness and the atmospheric ruins of Urquhart Castle.
Enjoy a variety of walking terrain as you hike quiet forest trails, canal towpaths, heather-clad hills and open moorland on this coast-to-coast route. From Fort William to Inverness the landscape is littered with fascinating historical sites from the Old Fort of Fort William (strategically important in the Jacobean rebellion), to the medieval Urquhart Castle, home to Robert the Bruce in the early 1300s. On the shores of Loch Ness the castle enjoys dramatic views of the glen and is ideally placed for a little "Nessie" spotting. The route follows the Caledonian Canal as it traverses the Highlands from Scotland's west to east coast. The canal towpaths, well-made trails and excellent signposting along the trail, along with low and high route options make this trip the perfect choice for experienced walkers and those new to walking holidays alike.
