One of the longest walks in the as yet incomplete network. It makes use of part of the Great Glen Way; but the newly cut and laid-out tracks, largely above the forest level, are the most scenic. From the summit cairn on Carn na Leitire, 435m (hill on the slope to the water, i.e. Loch Ness) there is a superb 360-degree panoramic view; and the recreated shieling (mountain hut) offers a lunch site overlooking Loch Ness. (By the way, there's a Bronze Age hut too, near the car park).
Parts of the track can be muddy; boots are necessary. Also, the higher parts of the walk are exposed in bad weather, so extra clothing should be carried.
Note that since this is a new walk, with new paths, the paths are not shown on the Ordnance Survey map.
