Trail of the Seven Lochs

80 km / 50 miles

A 50-mile sustainable loop route that provides stunning views and varied terrain for walkers and riders in the South Loch Ness area. Please note that some sections can be accessed by mountain bikes, but other areas go through rough terrain and are not suitable for cycles or novice walkers - so please have a look at the directions on the website and choose the route that is most suitable for you and the weather conditions.

The Trail of the 7 Lochs is a circular route so there is no designated starting point. There is a nominal starting point at the Forestry Commission Centre at Inverfarigaig as there is good parking there and toilets.
