    The Great Glen Way is a 75 mile (120 km) hiking and cycling trail that links Inverness in the north-east to Fort William in the south-west.


    Following along Loch Ness, Loch Oich and the wonderfully named Loch Lochy as well as the Caledonian Canal, you’ll never be far from water along the Great Glen Way
