Great Glen Way

Posted on Thursday, 10 May 2018 . Permalink

Joy followed on from the West Highland Way to trek the Great Glen Way. Together these walks take you from Glasgow to Inverness.

A bench typical of the GGW with a wooden seat built into a dry-stone wall. Behind is Loch Ness. The GGW climbs above the lock in two main stretches, either side of Invermoriston.

There are two old stone bridges in Invermoriston. This is the village part-way up Loch Ness. There is a ceilidh in the village hall every Thursday evening.


Nearer Fort William, the ski area of Aonach Moor (Nevis Range) with Carn Mor Dearg and Ben Nevis to the right of the scene. The GGW crosses the glen to gain these views of the peaks and start the Caledonian Canal.

Looking down the length of Loch Ness.

A second high view above Loch Ness. The hills on the far side ultimately form the Monadh Liath, a rolling stretch of moorland and rounded peaks.
