      Open details for Great Glen Way by Bike

      Scotland

      Great Glen Way by Bike

      The Great Glen Cycle Way is a Scottish Coast to Coast route largely following the walking route of the Great Glen Way National Trail but has a different route around Loch Oich to the walkers. The ride is approximately 80 miles / 129km starting at Fort William, near the foot of Ben Nevis (Britain’s highest peak), follows the shores of the famous Loch Ness and finishes at Inverness, Scotland’s north‑most city and the “capital of the Highlands”. A lot of the cycling is straightforward, along canal towpaths and forest tracks, but there are some more challenging sections on gravel fire roads and on single‑track. Some hills are pretty steep and it maybe just as well to get off, walk and admire the view on these sections.
