Great Glen Way (Trailblazer British Walking Guide) Synopsis

All-in-one, practical guide to walking the Great Glen Way long-distance footpath. The trail begins where the West Highland Way ends - at Fort William - and follows the Great Glen faultline to finish at Inverness after 79 miles (127km). The trail passes Loch Lochy, Loch Oich and Loch Ness and also follows the towpath of the Caledonian Canal. It's a relatively easy week-long walk amongst beautiful Highland scenery but there's a high level option between Fort Augustus and Drumnadrochit that gives even better mountain views. This 2nd edition has been re-walked and fully updated. * Includes 38 detailed walking maps: the largest-scale maps available - at just under 1:20,000 (8cm or 31/8 inches to 1 mile) these are bigger than even the most detailed walking maps currently available in the shops * Unique mapping features - walking times, directions, tricky junctions, places to stay, places to eat, points of interest.
