East Highland Way
The East Highland Way is a wonderful new walk through the Highlands of Scotland. Beginning in Fort William at the foot of Ben Nevis and ending in Aviemore in the shadow of the Cairngorm Mountains, it passes through an enchanting mix of secluded glens, heather-clad hills, broadleaf woodland, rugged mountains and pine-scented forest. The wildlife in this corner of the Scottish Highlands is abundant. With luck you may spot black grouse, capercaille, crossbill, osprey, goshawk, golden eagle, red squirrel, pine martin, mountain hare, otter and the Scottish wildcat or ‘Highland Tiger’.
While the main highlights of the East Highland Way are the scenery and wildlife, the walk also takes in some of Scotland’s finest historical attractions including Old Inverlochy Castle, the Pictish Fort Dun da Lamh, Ruthven Barracks and the stunning island castle of Loch an Eilein.
