The Great Glen Ways
Slighean a' Ghlinne Mhòir

What are the Three Ways?

The Great Glen is a natural feature - a geological fault line between Fort William and Inverness. The area encompasses some of the best known landmarks in Scotland including Ben Nevis, Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. The Glen is a significant tourist attraction and major route through the Highlands, between east and west.

Most visitors will drive through the Glen, but the three Great Glen Ways - walking, cycling and boating - offer a sustainable alternative. Whether completed from coast to coast, or sampled in bite-sized chunks, the three ways offer an unforgettable experience.

What is the Great Glen Ways Project?

The Great Glen Ways Project is primarily an access and interpretation initiative embracing the Caledonian Canal, the Great Glen Mountain Bike Trails and the Great Glen Way Long Distance Route. Find out more on our our Project page.
