The Great Glen

Rating
The Great Glen, Loch Ness & Inverness
Departs Fort William
380 million years ago a massive fault line cut across Scotland and formed what is now known as The Great Glen. This massive geological tear in the Earth’s crust was dramatic enough but today it gives Scotland some of the most impressive and iconic scenery seen anywhere in the world. From Fort William through Loch Ness you will make your way through 73 miles (117km) of stunning Scottish landscape by foot, canoe, sea kayak and bike.

DAY 1: FORT WILLIAM TO LAGGAN - BIKE AND HIKE

Departs Fort William at 10am. We meet for an initial kit check. Then we mountain bike to South Laggan past ‘Neptune's Staircase’ to the Caledonian Canal and Loch Lochy. We bike along the towpath before crossing the swing bridge at Gairlochy. Enjoy great views of Loch Arkaig and onto the shore of Loch Lochy with a possible refreshment stop at a pub on a barge! We continue on and hear about the 'Seven Heads Well' on the shore of Loch Oich. Don’t worry, there are hot showers and the tepees are all set up for your arrival, you just need to enjoy the experience of cooking and eating in the great outdoors.

DAY 2: LAGGAN TO FORT AUGUSTUS - KAYAK AND HIKE

Today we take to the water and canoe from Loch Oich, one of the four main lochs in the Great Glen, all the way to the start of mighty and monstrous Loch Ness! After a day on the water there’s a chance for a well-earned local beer at Morag’s Lodge.

DAY 3: FORT AUGUSTUS TO DRUMNADROCHIT - KAYAK

A stunning day kayaking the waters of Loch Ness, past the ruins of Urquhart Castle where the monster has been spotted many times. The dark waters of Loch Ness remain cold all year round and come rain or shine this journey is spectacular. If you are lucky enough to be paddling on the Loch when It’s a mill pond then you will enjoy crystal clear reflections of the surrounding mountains.

DAY 4: DRUMNADROCHIT TO INVERNESS - KAYAK AND HIKE

We complete the remaining stretch of Loch Ness by canoe and enter Inverness by water, a unique way to view of the capital of the Highlands where our trip comes to an end. You’ll be tired but what an adventure! Arrives in Inverness late afternoon.
