The Great Glen Way - Alternative High Route 2014


One of Scotland’s Great Trails, The Great Glen Way, which has been upgraded with a 17km section of newly completed high level trail. Philip Thompson Ltd has been involved in this prestigious £1m project from feasibility to commissioning. By moving the path higher up the hill above the tree line, it takes walkers away from tree felling areas and opens up spectacular views to the north and south of Loch Ness as far as the north face of Ben Nevis on a clear day.

Speaking at the official opening, Cameron McNeish, author and broadcaster said;

“This long distance route is something of a ‘must do’ for walkers, visitors and tourists and it is one of the mainstays that help support businesses and tourism in the Loch Ness and Highland area."

"It has added even more ‘wow’ factor to what was already one of Scotland’s most scenic routes, which can only help increase its reputation and standing."

“Anyone visiting and walking this route now will be in for an incredible experience that will leave indelible memories and everyone involved deserves to be congratulated.”
