The Host homes were so clean and nice, and the hosts were wonderfully patient and kind. Some days were difficult, with the long mileage, but the villages we passed through were scenic and most of them had a place to stop and eat. The coffee house in Invermoriston was a real treat. We missed the cream tea at the church hall, but it was so nice to see a sign at the end of the trail, inviting walkers to their cream teas. (In Invermoriston) the side trip to the Cameron Clan museum made our trip longer, but the museum was very interesting and it was cool to walk the Dark Mile and imagine Bonnie Prince Charlie hiding out there.
We started out vacation in Inverness, so it was nice to finish our triip there too.
Great Glen Way guide book had a few errors in it, but there were enough sign posts that we didn't get lost. After Fort Augustus, we almost took a left turn up a hill, but someone had written "not the high road" on a sign post, so we continued on until we found the correct high road trail. Some distances were not specific, and we walked farther than expected. My friend insisted her watch measured distance accurately and that we had walked 17 miles on several days, but my phone measured 13 miles.
The Bottom Line
It was wonderful having someone take care of the logistics for us, and the accommodations were well worth what we paid for them. This particular route did offer opportunities to "bail out", or take a day off, because it followed the A82 and there were bus stops along the way. Loch Ness Travel was also very accommodating even when they were operating without one of their regular drivers. I hope he is feeling better now.
