Stage 02: Gairlochy to Invergarry – Great Glen Way
komoot planned a hike.
September 27, 2019
This stage takes you along the length of Loch Lochy, one of three major lochs in the Great Glen.
From Gairlochy, you follow the road around the southwestern end of the loch before descending to the lochside.
You rejoin the road near Achnacarry, where you find St Ciaran's, a serene church nestled amidst the trees.
After the village of Clunes, the trail continues on forest tracks for the rest of the length of the loch, passing some incredible viewpoints and wild camping spots.
You rejoin the road for a short time and follow forest tracks and minor roads to the village of Invergarry, where this stage finishes.
If you have the energy, it is a one-mile (one-and-a half kilometer) detour to see Invergarry Castle, a 17th-century ruin in an atmospheric setting overlooking Loch Oich.
Invergarry has some accommodation options and places to eat and drink.
