Great Glen Way 3: Laggan to Fort Augustus

The third section of the Great Glen Way is one of the finest. Two beautiful sections of the Caledonian Canal sandwich the lovely walk along the wild side of Loch Oich with its magnificent natural woodlands.


Easy canal tow-path plus a well made shared cycle path on the east side of Loch Oich.
