Taking a break from the Great Glen Way hiking trail on the shores of Loch Ness, Scotland

Why go hiking on the Great Glen Way?

  • Catch a glimpse of “Nessie”, the Loch Ness Monster!
  • Visit Urquhart Castle on the shores of Loch Ness. This 13th Century stronghold will give you a taste of how it felt to live in medieval Scotland
  • Enjoy spectacular surroundings minus the climbing. The Great Glen Way is a relatively gentle hike, much of it alongside the banks of the Caledonian Canal
  • Hike all the way across Scotland. The Great Glen Way is a Coast-to-coast hiking trail from the Atlantic Ocean in Fort William to Inverness on the North Sea
