Great Glen Cycleway

5 Days Mod-Advanced 79 MLS

The Great Glen is an amazing geographical fault line that splits Scotland in two, forming dramatic lochs and glens and one of the most famous bodies of water in the world; Loch Ness. Biking along the banks of loch after loch, travelling from Coast to Coast is an amazing experience that immerses you in the iconic scenery of the Great Glen. From relaxing canalside riding to flying down neat singletrack, the Great Glen Cycleway is a beautiful, challenging way to spend a couple of days.

Your trip begins in the shadow of Ben Nevis, at Fort William. From there you ease into the journey by following the Caledonian Canal, passing the man-made phenomenon of Neptune’s Staircase. You will soon be cycling on single track and fire road alongside the first of a series of lochs, Loch Lochy then Loch Oich before getting to the beautifully situated Fort Augustus. This is the gateway to Loch Ness which dominates the rest of your trip. With challenging climbs to reveal magnificent views and stunning, high speed downhills to follow, the trip really does have a little bit of everything.

Cycling the Great Glen is an unforgettable way to discover this amazing part of the country. The Great Glen is home to some of the most dramatic landscapes in the British Isles, quiet canal paths and off road tracks framed by the hills of the Glens and inhabited by warm and welcoming people.
