The Loch Ness Trail takes you on a tour around Scotland’s most iconic Loch. We’ve combined the South Loch Ness Trail and the northern half of the Great Glen Way to create a 77.5 mile route through the beautiful Great Glen.

The South Loch Ness Trail gives you an opportunity to explore the much quieter and less-visited southern shore of Loch Ness, where the picturesque and agricultural area of Stratherrick borders on the foothills of the Monadhliath Mountains. At the Falls of Foyers you can admire one of the most dramatic waterfalls in the highlands, which has drawn visitors for centuries, including Rabbie Burns himself.

The picturesque pebble beach at Dores is a wonderful place to sit by the lochside, perhaps with a pint from the 19th century Dores Inn.

On the Great Glen Way you can take the new High Route which take you above the treeline far above Loch Ness, providing views to the many distant mountains, and as far as Ben Nevis.

The route begins and ends at Inverness, the capital of the Highlands.
