    The second stage of the Great Glen Way contains the most climbing at 2,264 feet (690 m), although the distance of 22 miles (35.4 km) shouldn’t pose a problem and give you plenty of time to explore and take in the marvellous sights.


    For the entire stage you’ll be following down the west shore of Loch
