The Great Glen Way is a 79 mile walk through Scotland’s most famous Glen; crossing on foot from Fort William via the famed shores of Loch Ness to Inverness. The Great Glen Way takes you through beautiful forests, past peaceful working canals and alongside brooding lochs. Macs Adventure offers a variety of durations for the walk, dependent on how much time you have and how far you'd like to hike each day.

Starting in Fort William at the base of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, you follow the Caledonian Canal via Neptune’s Staircase to Gairlochy, then continue up Loch Lochy to South Laggan, and on to Fort Augustus via Loch Oich and Kytra Lock. The Great Glen Way then follows the western shore of Loch Ness passing the highland towns of Invermoriston and Drumnadrochit until you reach the historic town of Inverness. Nessie hunters can even take a cruise on Britain's largest loch (by volume of water), whilst Urquhart Castle is another must-see, with its commanding view of Loch Ness, as is Inverness Castle at the walk’s end.
