South Loch Ness Trail (360)

With Heritage Path!

<<<<<                              >>>>>


The South Loch Ness Trail is a 3-stage 58 km walk with a difficulty grading of 2 (Slightly harder). The SLNT (together with the Great Glen Way now part of the "Loch Ness 360") follows the south side of Loch Ness from Fort Augustus to Torbreck on a mixture of minor roads, forest tracks and purpose-built trail.

This trail is a fantastic experience and takes you past many points of interest such as the Falls of Foyers, Suidhe Viewpoint and the Caledonian Canal in Fort Augustus and has what every long-distance trail should have – spectacular views, historical interest, peace and quiet and places along the route to stop, rest and relax.

The SLNT connects in Fort Augustus with the Great Glen Way and the Scottish National Trail.
