The Great Glen Way

Inverness - Fort William

The Way runs for 77 miles between Inverness and Fort William alongside Loch Ness, Loch Oich and Loch Lochy
and through some of Scotlands most beautiful landscapes. The Caledonian Canal also runs the length of the Way and
links between the three lochs. Using mainly forestry tracks the cycle route follows that of the footpath as it undulates
between the biggest city and town in the Scotish Highlands...
