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

All accommodations and helpful information, services, etc., were perfect for first-time visitors from the U.S. like us. We’ve not encountered such “walking holiday” tours before here in the States, even though we’ve hiked here at home fairly extensively, and we now understand what a pleasure it is to experience a travel service such as yours.
