The Great Glen Map

The Great Glen (Scottish Gaelic: An Gleann Mòr), also known as Glen Albyn (Gleann Albainn , the Glen of Scotland) or Glen More is a series of glens in Scotland running 100 kilometres from Inverness on the Moray Firth, to Fort William at the head of Loch Linnhe. The Great Glen follows a large geological fault known as the Great Glen Fault. It bisects the Scottish Highlands into the Grampian Mountains to the southeast and the Northwest Highlands to the northwest. The highest mountain and deepest lake in the UK are located here.
A recent development has been to open a long,distance route for cyclists and walkers. Called the Great Glen Way it links Fort William to Inverness. Clearly marked along the way, connecting a series of footpaths, forestry tracks, canal paths with the occasional stretch of road The Great Glen Way was officially opened on 30 April 2002 by HRH The Duke of York, Earl of Inverness.
