Busy, busy, busy 30th June!

Mon 23 Jun 2014

Monday 30th June is proving to be a very popular day for groups of paddlers to start their Great Glen Canoe Trail expeditions - we've had more than 10 groups notify us that they'll be setting off on that day. We're delighted that so many people will be joining us on the Caledonian Canal but it does mean that paddlers, walkers and cyclists planning to use the canal's informal camping spots or wild camp along the loch shores should have a 'plan B' for each of their overnight stops because they're very likely to find commonly used sites are full.  We're asking all Wayfarers to respect the Outdoor Access code when it comes to wild camping and to consider booking at one of the Glen's commercial campsites to be sure of finding somewhere to pitch their tents.

60 miles in 5 days

It is an epic 60 mile (95km) journey crossing Scotland in 5 days and conquering the formidable open waters of Loch Lochy and Loch Ness, a challenge in itself.

From South to North

It is normally easier to paddle the Trail from Fort William in the west to Inverness in the east with the prevailing wind behind you.
