This more straightforward section of the Scottish National Trail follows the route of the Great Glen Way for the most part, at first along the towpath of the Caledonian Canal before a wilder stretch on the southern side of Loch Oich. The stage ends at Mandally where there is a hostel (Saddle Mountain); the additional facilities of Invergarry are only a short walk away.


Good paths or tracks throughout; first half is on canal towpath.
