OVERVIEW

Discover the best of the Great Glen Way and Loch Ness on this short walking break. From the westerly tip of Loch Ness sits the historic hamlet of Fort Augustus.

Leaving Fort Augustus, the trail ventures deep into ancient woodland and up onto heather-clad moors, where red deer roam high on the hillsides and birds of prey can be spotted soaring high above. Descend to the waterside town of Drumnadrochit and visit the mystical remains of Urquhart Castle on the shores of Loch Ness. In the evenings, stay in family run bed and breakfasts and old coaching inns which have long welcomed travellers along the Great Glen Way. Ending in the highland capital of Inverness, rounds off this perfect short Scottish walking experience.

As the saying goes in Scotland, you can take the high road or low road today! Both of which have far reaching views across Loch Ness.

On the high route there are even some excellent shelter spots to pull out your picnic and enjoy views across to the peak of Beinn a’Bhacaidh and Loch Ness.
