Walking the Great Glen Way

Walking the Great Glen Way

Guidebook by Paddy Dillon to walking the Great Glen Way, a 79 mile trail along the Caledonia Canal from Fort William to Inverness. The route is described in both directions, and a separate OS 1:25K mapping booklet is included.

The trail is split into six stages easily walked within a week, with high and low-level options given for two of these. An alternative route past the northern side of Loch Oich (via Invergarry) is also described.

The guidebook includes practical information, 1:100,000 OS mapping, step-by-step route descriptions for every stage of the walk and lists the facilities found along the way.

The trail stretches alongside the scenic Caledonian Canal, which links Loch Lochy and Loch Oich with the famous Loch Ness. The route uses undulating forest tracks, lakeside paths, old drove roads and military roads, as well as contrasting stretches over heather moorlands or through city suburbs. The Great Glen is one of the most remarkable features in the Scottish landscape - a ruler-straight valley along an ancient fault line through the Highlands.
