The Caledonian Canal has brought life to the Great Glen. By opening up the waterway a whole range of industries became possible. The Great Glen Ways offers the outdoor enthusiast three ways to cross the country coast to coast - by boot... by bike... by boat!
The Great Glen Canoe Trail is yet another example of what adventures await outdoor enthusiasts. With the number of paddlers taking on the Great Glen by boat (canoe and sea kayak), the trail required to be formalised to forward plan and manage both current and future usage.
Approx 4,000 paddlers took on Scotland's first formal Canoe Trail in 2010 and that figure will surely rise with the new infrastructure complete.
