Walkhighlands has some of the best information about walking and hiking in the Highlands. We highly recommend the site for preparing for your hiking holiday.

Great Glen Lodges are placed at the very heart of the Scottish Highlands, with more than 58 Munros within easy access from here.

  • The Cuillins on Skye are only 1hr 45 min away.
  • The Great Glen way route passes the entrance to the lodges with 2 Munros just behind and Ben Tee on our door step.
  • The base of Ben Nevis, Britain’s tallest mountain, is just 26 miles away.

If you find this too exhausting, you can enjoy a cable-car ride up Aonach Mor, just 17 miles from here, and at the top, you can see an amazing view of Fort William, looking onto Ben Nevis and over the lochs and mountains as far as you can see.
