Great Glen Way

71 miles, 114 km, 6 days

Loch Ness and its historic surroundings attract many people. This very popular and easy walk holds the promise of seeing some terrifying prehistoric monster .. Traildino? You might see Ben Nevis. You'll climb some hills and walk flat on towpaths. If you are in despair, buy a map and free yourself from the masses by venturing into the empty hills. Weather permitting.
