Loch Ness 360° Trail

Developed by Visit Inverness Loch Ness, the Loch Ness 360° Trail connects the Great Glen Way with the South Loch Ness Trail creating a new long-distance walking, cycling and horseriding route around Loch Ness stretching for 80 miles.


Walking this Scottish trail should take around six days to complete the entire loop. Cyclists can expect to take two to three days for this Loch Ness cycle path. You’ll find runners and horse riders enjoying the trail too.


On the North Side of Loch Ness, the trail follows the Great Glen Way’s blue waymarkers with the thistle symbol. On the South Side of Loch Ness, follow the South Loch Ness Trail waymarkers. These are also blue with a squirrel symbol.


You will need a good level of fitness and some experience of hill walking to complete all sections of the Loch Ness 360° Trail. Some parts of the route are steep, and the width and quality of the path varies along the way. Also, some areas are remote from roads and services, with an unreliable mobile phone signal. So, map reading skills are important too. See Mountaineering Scotland’s guide to safety and skills, to ensure you are fully prepared for the walk ahead.
