The Great Glen

The Great Glen runs for 62 miles from Inverness in an almost straight line to Fort William, following a geological fault which bisects the Scottish Highlands into the Grampian Mountains to the southeast, and the Northwest Highlands to the northwest. 

A natural travelling route, the Great Glen is used by both The Caledonian Canal and the A82 road, and in 2002 the Great Glen Way opened, providing a long-distance route for cyclists, canoeists and walkers. Much of the glen is taken up with a series of lochs, with rivers connecting them.

Loch Gates / Ben Nevis, Great Glen Way

Active Outdoor’s Great Glen Centre is based on the shores of Loch Oich between Fort William and Fort Augustus. The loch forms part of the Caledonian Canal, of which it is the highest point. 

Another ‘highest point’ in the glen is Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles which stands at 4,411 ft above sea level.
