Great Glen Way (Trailblazer British Walking Guide): This book is an 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.
