Hotels Great Glen Way Inverness
Inverness Castle is the eastern terminus of the Great Glen Way, a hiking path stretching 73 miles (117 km) from Fort William to Inverness. It is one of the national long distance walking routes and follows the fault line of the Great Glen and the Caledonian Canal that links the lochs in it: Loch Lochy, Loch Oich and Loch Ness. The terrain is varied and covers moorland, forests and open countryside. Although flat when following the canal, it also has some steep ascents. Highlights to be seen along the way include Ben Nevis, Neptunes Staircase (a set of eight locks), Bridge of Oich and Urquhart Castle. The route is well marked with distinctive blue timber posts or blue panels on buildings. There are also interpretive panels along the way at points of interest. There are hotels and bars on the route, and bag carrying companies to transport your luggage. It is not for the casual walker and those embarking on the path are warned to be well equipped
