Hiking Highlight (Segment)
komoot planned a hike.
September 27, 2019
Taking you from smallest loch in the Great Glen, Loch Oich, to the most famous, Loch Ness, the Way’s character really begins to shine on this stage.
From Invergarry, you continue above Loch Oich for its remaining length and then descend to the Caledonian Canal at the Aberchalder Swing Bridge.
You then follow the canal all the way to Fort Augustus, where you are greeted with a breathtaking view over Loch Ness.
At Fort Augustus, you can choose between the low route, alongside Loch Ness, or the high route, above it.
This hike follows the high route due to its stunning views over Loch Ness. Both routes are similar in distance and are well-signposted. However, the high route involves around 600 feet (183 meters) of extra ascent.
This stage finishes in the village of Invermoriston, which has a range of accommodation, places to eat and drink, and a small shop.
