Day 6, Drumnadrochit to Inverness
Approximately 20 miles. Or 1, if you’re us. But who’s counting?
That’s right, today we cheated. We resigned. We chose to play on our vacation, rather than walk. We learned about Nessie, explored a castle, and cruised the loch. We didn’t walk the trail at all, except the bits that took us from Tramps to castle. Read more
Day 5, Invermoriston to Drumnadrochit
Approximately 15 miles. Or maybe 16. Definitely our longest day! Read more

Approximately 8 miles. Read more
We chose to take a rest day in Fort Augustus for several reasons:

Now I don’t remember everything they said (the website has changed a bit since we booked our travel), but I believe they called it “bustling” and, mentioned things like cruises, castles, and quaint shops.
All good reasons to stop there, right? Read more
