There are more than 30 long distance walking trails in Scotland, each from 30 to few hundred kilometres long. So the beautiful historical region could easily be visited in a pace you enjoy the most, be it rough intense hiking, or slow laid back walking (or should I say wandering). Great Glen Way is also on this list and is one of the better known trails, linking Fort William and Inverness, the regional capital. It is considered to be a perfect trail to get used to long distance hiking and to get to know Scotland.
Great Glen Way is usually divided into 6 stages (each from 12 to 30km), but undoubtedly you can hike less or more than you are supposed. Being a great introduction to Scottish history, Scotland itself and long distance hiking, I hope you decide that Great Glen Way is the best way to spend the upcoming holidays.
Since words are not always enough, I hope pictures will be.
