“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.
For our trip, we left our car in Inverness and used the 'bike-taxi' from an Inverness-based company Ticket to Ride to carry us and our bikes from Fort William back to Inverness after the ride. Very effective, and well priced. They also offer baggage transfer, if you're prepared to pay to ride lighter.
Based on the trails before and after this alternative section, I anticipate that the alternative trail will include sections of undulating gravel forestry tracks, singletrack, and/or doubletrack paths through the woods.
Note that this alternative section still involves climbing!
This section rejoins the Great Glen Way: Day 3 - Fort Augustus to Fort William route southwest of Laggan Locks.
