Work has now been completed on the last major section of the South Loch Ness trail between the Glendoe Hydro works entrance and Loch Tarff. The completion marks the culmination of a project which began 9 years ago, to create a trail 55km in length between Inverness and Fort Augustus on the south side of Loch Ness using a mixture of existing minor roads, paths, forest tracks and newly constructed trail where required.
The 3.6km section between Glendoe and Loch Tarff has been particularly challenging and would not have been possible without funding support from SSE, The Highland Council and the Scottish Government & European Union as well as the full support from Glendoe Estate over whose land the trail has been constructed. The opening of this section, linked to that constructed last, from Glendoe down to Fort Augustus, opens up the South Loch Ness Trail to more walkers, mountain bikers and horse riders and, particularly on this section of the trail, to those of limited mobility”.
