About this book

The Great Glen Way measures 117km (73 miles) and its course includes easy, level stretches alongside the Caledonian Canal, undulating forest tracks, lakeside paths, old drove roads and military roads, as well as contrasting stretches over heather moorlands or through city suburbs. This work talks about the great Glen way.

'The Great Glen Way provides a good introduction to long distance walking in Scotland. A low-level, waymarked route through the grandeur of the Scottish highlands, its 73 miles takes on e from Fort William to Inverness. Or even vice-versa, as the author has written instructions for either direction.With over 30 guidebooks to his name, the author is well known as a reliable and interesting writer and this one maintains his reputation.'(Strider / August 2007)Check out the review on the following website:
