Walk a more remote section of the Great Glen Way with wonderful views over little Loch Oich through rich woodlands. Follow the canal and river that link Loch Oich to the iconic Loch Ness, Scotland’s deepest loch. 

Soon you’ll reach Fort Augustus—here the canal passes directly through the heart of the village—on the shores of Loch ness. Why not sample delicious local cuisine in The Brasserie restaurant at the Lovat Hotel before a relaxing evening in your accommodation? Perched on the southern end of Loch Ness among dramatic peaks this secluded location is a fabulous setting for a good night’s sleep.
