“Spectacular views of the Scottish Highlands and Lochs, some of the most beautiful scenery in Britain.”— Tim Swinburn
Weather here can change quickly, so carry good waterproofs and warm clothes (it rains here regularly, and can be windy). In warm, calm weather there are likely to be problems with midges; they are less of a problem in early Spring and late Autumn.
We enjoyed great food and drink on the Great Glen Way at Loch Ness Clayworks, Cafe Eighty 2 in Dromnadrochit, The Moorings in Fort Augustus.
For our trip, we left our car in Inverness and used the 'bike-taxi' from an Inverness-based company
Based on the trails before and after this section, I anticipate that the Low Route will include sections of undulating gravel forestry tracks, singletrack, and/or doubletrack paths through the woods. There should be less steep trails on the Low Route.
Note that the Low Route still involves climbing!
The High Route and Low Route rejoin just before the terrific fast trail down to Invermoriston.
