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 straight forward, along canal towpaths, forest tracks, but there are some challenging sections.
We have a range of holidays along the Great Glen Way from our full 5,6 or 7 day options. Make your choice depending on your available time and pace you find most comfortable. Click on the links below to have a look at the details for each holiday.
