This booklet is included with the Cicerone guidebook to the trail, and shows the full route on Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps. The route typically takes a week to walk, and is suitable for walkers at all levels of experience.
SeasonsLow-lying, so it is possible to walk the Great Glen Way at most times of year. Accommodation is often busy in summer, and midges are out! Daylight is short in winter with fewer accommodation options.
