Great Glen Way
The Great Glen Way was officially opened on the 30th of April 2002 by H.R.H. Prince Andrew, Earl of Inverness.
The route, which spans 79 miles/127km between Fort William and Inverness, can be walked in 5-6 days, staying overnight in the various communities within the Glen.
The Great Glen Way suits all levels of walker. For the less experienced it is the perfect introduction to long distance walking, being for the most part low-level and following mainly towpaths and woodland tracks. There are some challenging sections though, and the more experienced may wish to tackle a few Munros or Corbetts within reach from the route.
The Great Glen Way is also suitable for use by mountain bikes and horse riders. For more information visit the website or call the Great Glen Way Rangers on 01320 366633.
The route can be travelled in either direction. However, going from Fort William to Inverness you have the prevailing wind behind you and when walking or cycling you begin with the easier sections of the Way.
