    You are faced with another choice of high or low route at the beginning of this stage.

    The high route from Invermoriston involves around 625 feet (191 meters) of extra ascent, but is worth it as you are treated to some of the best Loch Ness views going.

    It is a sharp and winding climb out of Invermoriston to the Viewcatcher Wheel art installation, which frames the view of a group of Munros north of Loch Cluanie.

    The trail continues over the tops along a clearly waymarked path with fine views over Loch Ness.

    There are some tough ascents and descents along this section, but the trail is well designed with wide zig zags on the steep sections and plenty of perfectly-positioned rest spots to take in the views.

    This stage finishes in the village of Drumnadrochit, which has a good range of accommodation, places to eat and drink, as well as shops and other attractions.
