Starting in Fort William and ending in Inverness, the "The Great Glen Way" trip is a self-guided walking trip that takes 8 days. You will travel through Fort William, Invermoriston, South Laggan and 4 other destinations in Scotland. "The Great Glen Way" is a private trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Walk through the heart of the Scottish Highlands at your own pace. Opened in April 2002, this long distance walking trail travels right through the very heart of Scotland. From Fort William to Inverness you'll discover the highlights that make this area such a magnet for walkers. Pass by the foot of Ben Nevis (1344m), the highest mountain in the UK. Follow undulating forest tracks along the shores of Loch Ness and walk through a mixture of farmland, exposed high moorlands and woodland as you make your way to the capital of the Highlands, Inverness. Along the route you will also encounter the forts and castles scattered along the way that lay witness to Scotland's turbulent past, from the Iron Age to the Jacobite Rebellion led by Bonnie Prince Charlie who was finally defeated at the Battle of Culloden.

“Enjoyed seeing the locks in action in Fort Augustus; the High Route from Fort Augustus was beautiful; meeting people along the way, no midgies!, and sampling whiskies at the end of the day.”
