Located between Fort William, in the south-west, and Inverness, in the north-east, this magnificent 79-mile (127-kilometer) path is well-marked with information. Taking in sections of Thomas Telford's historic Caledonian Canal, the route begins (or ends) in Fort William, which lies in the shadow of Britain's tallest mountain, Ben Nevis, and passes over the country's most significant geological fault before arriving in Inverness, the Highlands' administrative centre.
A walk along the Great Glen Path is suitable for walkers of all abilities and experience levels, and it may be completed in 4–7 days with overnight stops in the many settlements along the route. Due to the fact that it is mainly flat and follows canal towpaths, forest trails, and roads, it is an excellent choice for families with little children. There are some hard portions, though, and the more experienced hiker may want to consider climbing one of the Munros or Corbetts that are immediately accessible from the trail.
Enjoy the vistas from this low-level yet demanding long distance route that has a variety of wildlife. Keep a look out for osprey, golden eagle, red kite, pine marten, and deer as you take in the scenery.
