Walk Loch Ness 360
This innovative and exciting circular walk was made possible by combining the beautiful South Loch Ness Trail together with the Great Glen Way. Personally researched by walking the full trail ourselves, we can confirm that the circular route totals 81 miles/130 km
You can choose to start either in Scotland’s Highland Capital Inverness or in the bustling tourist village of Fort Augustus (the latter being recommended if you are driving to your start point and wish to leave a car for the duration)
Starting at Inverness, you make your way southwards on the South Loch Ness Trail via the picturesque villages of Dores, Inverfarigaig and then Foyers with the dramatic Falls of Foyers. Whitebridge is the next point on the map before you make your way past Loch Tarff onwards into Fort Augustus. You then pick up the Great Glen Way footpath and head up the north side of the loch via Invermoriston and Drumnadrochit to reach your final destination at Inverness Castle
The South Loch Ness Trail and Great Glen Way routes are very well signposted, using a network of good paths with fine views as you make your way around Loch Ness through beautiful forests with stunning vistas of the loch. There is a short stretch of the South Loch Ness Trail at the beginning of the trail from Inverness to Torbrek which is not signposted but this is easy to follow and route notes will be provided

Are the sections on the South Loch Ness Trail which are not signposted easy to navigate?
The short stages from Inverness to Torbreck and from Loch Tarff to Fort Augustus are not signposted at present. However, at Gemini Walks we strive to make sure that nothing is left to chance and so we provide well researched route notes for our clients!
