The Loch Ness 360⁰ is a new long-distance trail that joins the Great Glen Way with the South Loch Ness Trail for a stunning 80 miles (129km). The south side of the route is marked with a squirrel symbol on a blue South Loch Ness Trail way marker and the north side of the route is signed with the Great Glen Way’s blue way markers with the thistle symbol.
So many people come to Loch Ness to see if they can see the infamous ‘Nessie’ but on this walk, you will soon discover that there is much more to see. The loch itself is 23 miles (37km) long and is the second largest Scottish loch by surface area. It is 755ft (230m) at its deepest point, making it the largest by volume in the British Isles. The very dark water is due to the peat content from the land, making seeing anything in the water impossible. As this walk takes you along forest tracks and across moorland as well as loch side, look out for the majestic red deer, black grouse or some capercaillie, the huge woodland grouse, magnificent golden eagles, osprey and ptarmigan flying across the skies. You might also get to see pine martins, red squirrels and otters. Take time to be quiet as you journey to see who is watching you!
