How you choose to break your route into stages is entirely up to you. The Rangers have created some examples of Great Glen journeys ranging between 4-7 days in length, but these are not prescriptive nor the only ones available. One of the great things about the route is that you can use your imagination to make your trip completely your own!
When planning your trip, bear in mind that the distance between each overnight stop is something you must decide personally, based on your own levels of fitness and experience.
Accommodation type and availability vary along the Glen. Please check that your desired accommodation is possible when planning your route and we would always suggest booking in advance, particularly in smaller settlements. Please remember that if you are camping or wild camping, then you have much greater flexibility.
General route distance information is available here.
