Must See Places:

  • Loch Ness & the Great Glen

There was a rift which divided the land and the rift has widened over the years. Today has beautiful greens, mountains, monuments and castles for visitors to see. One will also hear of stories of a monster whose mystery is what keeps the interest on. One can walk through the route from Fort William to Inverness. It will take around 6 days for somebody to complete it in spite of not too many highlands and fairly low lying trails.
