The High Route

Now open! The Great Glen as you have never seen it before with bigger views, less trees, sky views to take the breath away, open moorland and opportunities for unprecedented wild life spotting.

Work started in August 2013 to create this bespoke path for all users of the GGW, particularly when harvesting is taking place and the current route is impassable. This means that the likelihood of route closures will be significantly reduced for years to come. The High Route was opened to walkers in August 2014.
