The South Loch Ness Trail

The South Loch Ness Trail is a brand new and exciting trail for all types of user was officially launched in August 2011. The trail stretches for approximately 28 miles between Loch Tarff near Fort Augustus to Torbreck on the edge of Inverness via Whitebridge, Foyers, Inverfarigaig and Dores.

The Route:

Starting from Loch Tarff a few miles outside Fort Augustus, the trail rises sharply to Suidhe Viewpoint at 1200ft. From here south Loch Ness stretches out before you. It is a land of mystery and legend, bountiful wildlife and flora, forest, heather, peat clad moors and awe inspiring views. It is also the peaceful ,undiscovered, side of Loch Ness dominated by quiet minor roads and small communities – the population of the area is today still less than 1000.

From Suidhe Viewpoint the trail drops down through woodland and follows a minor road to Whitebridge. Whitebridge is dominated by the finest surviving example of a single span General Wade Bridge built in 1732. From Whitebridge it roughly follows the line of the old Wade road to the village of Foyers.
