  • Day 1: Inverness

    Stop At: Inverness, UK
    Check in to your accommodation and explore Inverness. There are several good pubs and restaurants.
    The Castle Tavern is always popular and you might want to make a booking with Rocpool Rendezvous
    as a treat on your return at the end of the week. If you’ve got time swing by our base in Bellfield Park to
    try the bikes or pick up last minute essentials from the town centre.

    Duration: 12 hours

    No meals included on this day.

    Day 2: Inverness - Foyers

    Stop At: Foyers, Inverness IV2 6XU, UK
    20 miles / 1394ft | 32km / 425m
    Cycle from Inverness at the mouth of the River Ness and head south-west along the signposted cycle
    route number 78. The route passes along quiet farm roads and the profile of The Great Glen soon looms
    on the horizon. Loch Ness appears for the first time as you reach the loch-side village of Dores. Stop off
    at The Dores Inn for refreshments or an early lunch and take time off the bike to explore the beach on
    foot. The beach at Dores is home to full-time Nessie Hunter Steve Feltham who has kept a watchful eye
    on the water since 1991. He’s bound to have clocked up some amazing sightings, right?
    Back on the bike, stick to Route 78 and follow the road by the shore. At Inverfarigaig you can again
    explore on foot through tall conifer trees on waymarked trails. The gorge of Inverfarigaig was cut by
    meltwater at the end of the last ice age. The Falls of Foyers are easy to find and all the more impressive
    if you’ve just been rained on. Cameron’s Tearoom serves fantastic afternoon teas in a really welcoming
    environment amidst the resident highland cows and deer.
    Duration: 12 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    Accommodation included: Overnight at local guest house or Bed and Breakfast

    Day 3: Foyers - Fort Augustus

    Stop At: Fort Augustus PH32, UK
    14miles/1407ft | 23km/429m
    It’s not the hilliest day today but there is a big a climb to the highest point of the whole 360. Take the
    waymarked South Loch Ness Trail which follows the river Foyers to the tiny village of Whitebridge. The
    hotel offers lunches 12-2pm every day except Mondays. Stick to the South Loch Ness Trail as the track
    climbs to the magnificent Suidhe (soo-ee) Viewpoint. The views are truly panoramic and there are often
    deer to be seen on the hill-side if you look closely. You need a bit of luck to spot a golden eagle but your
    best chance is around this point. You’ve earned the long descent past Loch Tarff to Fort Augustus. The
    village was originally called Kiliwhimin but became known as Fort Augustus after the 1715 Jacobite
    uprising when a military base was built here and named after the Duke of Cumberland. The fort is long
    gone but today the village bustles with visitors catching a cruise on Loch Ness or watching boats pass
    through the locks on the Caledonian Canal. If you’ve still got energy to burn you can explore the paths by
    the canal. Following Great Glen Way signs to Loch Oich and back adds a further 10miles / 16km to the
    Duration: 12 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    Accommodation included: Overnight at local guest house or Bed and Breakfast

    Day 4: Fort Augustus - Drumnadrochit

    Stop At: Drumnadrochit, Inverness IV63, UK
    22 miles / 3257ft | 35km / 993m
    The Great Glen Way is a coast to coast path linking Fort William on
    the west coast with Inverness on the east and you’ll follow this
    waymarked trail all the way from now on. Today is not quite the
    longest but it has the most hills so an extra large bowl of porridge
    at breakfast is a good idea. Set off early, take it steady and
    remember that most visitors to Loch Ness won’t have earned the
    views that you have. The village of Invermoriston provides
    refreshment before the three big hills of the day. Drumnadrochit is
    a great wee village with a good choice of pubs and restaurants.
    Urquhart Castle is just outside the village and you should plan a
    couple of hours for a visit on arrival or first thing the following
    morning. If you’re still looking for evidence of Nessie, the Loch
    Ness Centre and Exhibition is a good place to start.
    Duration: 12 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    Accommodation included: Overnight at local guest house or Bed and Breakfast

    Day 5: Drumnadrochit - Inverness

    Stop At: Inverness, UK
    23 miles / 2043ft | 37km / 623m
    It’s slightly longer today but only one big climb and
    the payoff is a magnificent descent towards
    Inverness and that’s the bit you’ll remember. Along
    the way you’ll find Abriachan Forest a community
    owned woodland with blue and green graded
    mountain bike trails. You can play here safe in the
    knowledge that the hard work is behind you and
    refreshments are available at the nearby Eco Cafe
    and Campsite. Sandra and Howie offer a unique
    fresh air dining experience that’s literally
    off-the-beaten-path. When you reach Inverness
    you’ll meet the Caledonian Canal again and pass
    through the beautiful forested Ness Islands before
    completing your Loch Ness 360 at Inverness Castle.
