From Abriachan the route starts uphill on a broad but roughly surfaced track (much of the Way is on such tracks so boots are advised). But the last section of the walk is downhill on better paths, to reach the shore of Loch Ness a mile before Drumnadrochit. Unfortunately the last mile is on the pavement bordering the A82(T).
On the A82(T) turn off at grid ref 573350 to climb to Abriachan (a steep and twisty road). Passing Loch Laide on your left, take the first turn-off on your left (542356). The car park is 200m along this forestry road, on your left (this is also the car park for Walk 1531).
At the other end of the walk, park at the Information Centre in Drumnadrochit grid ref (508300).
There is also a bus service between Inverness and Drumnadrochit; but not to Abriachan.
