Great Glen Way 5 High Route: Invermoriston to Drumnadrochit

The Great Glen Way high level option from Invemoriston has some steep climbs through the wooded hills north of the loch and offers some stunning vantage points. The walk then rejoins the low level option, passing through varied woodland before reaching the road at Bunloit which crosses a high moorland area before the steep descent to Drumnadrochit.


Waymarked walking on tracks, minor roads and paths throughout; some steep ascents and descents.
