The beginning of Great Glen Way... This is in Fort William at the southern end and 73 miles to go!
If Scotland is divided by the major fiords and bays into thirds, the Great Glen Way divides the upper third, the Highlands and Islands, from the middle third and extends from Inverness to Fort William. It is actually a separate chunk of land, and has its’ own geological origins from the rest of Great Britain. After a few million years it will head south as fast as a fingernail grows in a year, bumping into Northern Ireland, perhaps causing some mountainous damage. There’re three major lakes along the fault and several small villages along the way each ready to serve a hot meal, the whiskies (usually 50 or so available), and a place to stay.
