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

This is our second trip … Hadrian’s Wall being the first …and we find you and your support material, email communication, and general organisation excellent in all regards. It did help having had a previous trip to know how to use everything. It is comforting to know you are there to help if we need it. We look forward to booking another trip soon! Thanks.

We are so impressed with the organisation. Everything about our involvement has been fantastic. We’ve done the Hadrian’s Wall Path, West Highland Way and now the Great Glen Way and everything has flown smoothly as planned. Thank you.
