The Great Glen Way is one of Scotland's Great Trails and follows the course of the Caledonian Canal through the Highlands from Fort William to Inverness over up to 79 miles (124km). The waymarked trail includes easy, level stretches, undulating forest tracks, lakeside paths and old drove and military roads as well as high-level alternatives for those looking for a greater challenge. Typically taking a week to walk, the route is an ideal introduction to long-distance walking.
Hiking, trekking, varied walking
Low-lying, so it is possible to walk the Great Glen Way at most times of year. Accommodation is often busy in summer, and midges are out! Daylight is short in winter with fewer accommodation options.
