Great Glen Way

The Great Glen Way runs 73 miles (117km) following the Great Glen, (or Glen Mor or Glen Albyn). From Fort William on the Atlantic west coast to Inverness on the North Sea.

From Loch Linnhe on the Atlantic coast the route follows canal towpaths, loch shore paths and forestry tracks to reach Inverness, capital of the Highlands. This is a relatively easy, low level route providing great views of the Lochs of the Great Glen and fine panoramas of the surrounding Highlands. With good waymarking, most of the walk is straightforward, along canal towpaths and forest tracks, with few challenging sections.

Client Feedback

Having used Mickledore in 2005 (Hadrian’s Wall) and been on worldwide treks with not having a shower for up to 14 days; I decided to go back to Mickledore for a walking holiday with luxury.  I have to say I was not disappointed, the Great Glen Way was wonderful, the variation in the walk from the high routes to the amble along the canal path and lochs was a time to savour.  The Eagle, Red Squirrel and the siting of a giant Scottish Wood Ants Nest brought unforgettable pleasure.  This was made even more pleasurable knowing that a Mickledore chosen B&B, bed and a shower was in store. Never once was I disappointed, with a restful sleep followed by a sumptuous breakfast which was always devoured, to refuel for the day’s surprises and views of the Scottish landscape. Thank you.

The quality of the B&Bs was a real bonus. The rest of our party had booked with a different firm and some of their accommodation wasn’t as good as ours.

Would you use Mickledore again? Yes, definitely. Brilliantly organised. One B&B said Mickledore was the best firm they dealt with.

I booked this trip late, at a very busy time, with very specific dates. No other company could provide it, and one company referred me to Mickledore. I was most impressed that you could provide the trip, and even though I booked late, I was most impressed with the standard of accommodation. Thank you – next time I’m in the UK I will be trying to walk with you again.
