The Great Glen Way is a popular and challenging walking route, a connecting string between the towns of Fort William and Inverness.
Stretching 117km across the Highlands and beginning at the end of West Highland Way, visitors can walk along the natural fault line which divides Scotland's coasts. Along the route, visitors can stop by some of the most stunning spots, including Loch Lochy, Loch Oich, forests surrounding Loch Ness and also along the towpath of the Caledonian Canal, built by Thomas Telford.
The walk can be taken at different stages and many walkers choose to begin in one of the following towns and villages: Gairlochy; Laggan; Fort Augustus; Invermoriston, and Drumnadrochit.
