Did a small section of this over the weekend, the whole thing would take about a week to do. Very good views and a nice steady route to follow. Make sure you bring the right clothing and equipment with you and it is very enjoyable.

we found the beginning less interesting, as the scenery didn't change so much, but after ascending after Fort Augustus, we had wonderful views of Loch Ness, and even Ben Nevis. I hate uphill, but it was all worth it. we were blessed with great weather.

Walked the route in May 2018. We had fantastic weather. The scenery is wonderful, the route is very well signed but if you are looking for a bit of a challenge then this probably isn't the walk for you. Walking along the canals is flat,...More
