Description of Great Glen Way walking holiday in Scotland

This walking holiday on the Great Glen Way in Scotland is a tailor made trip, supporting and accommodating you along this 117km route through one of Scotlandís most famous landscapes, the Great Glen fault in the Highlands. The Great Glen Way is a long distance trail that opened in 2002, between Fort William in the west and Inverness in the east. It is a perfect route to follow independently, without a guide, although we do organise for your luggage to be transferred from one accommodation to the next.

The Great Glen Way passes through some of Scotland's most magnificent landscapes, as you walk alongside glistening lochs, through tranquil forests and in the foothills of mountains which are habitats for a wide array of wildlife. You also follow the route of the Caledonian Canal, which links up various lochs with locks, such as the impressive multi lock system at Fort Augustus. Historic towns along the way include Fort William, the outdoor adventure hub of the Highlands, and trail head for those wanting to climb Ben Nevis, Scotlandís highest peak. So you may want to extend your stay to summit it while you are here.

Accommodation

We have chosen accommodation along the way which are small, locally owned and, in many cases, are certified Green Tourism Business Scheme members. The price includes both bed and breakfast. There are plenty of cafes, pubs and restaurants along the way for lunches and dinners.
