Hi to all.
Having completed the GGW now on several occasions, I'm rather keen to tackle the new high route. Does anybody know if there are any route maps available or being planned to cover this alternate new route?

I see Contours are offering the Loch Ness Round from April 2014. Is the east side of L Ness section the new high route?

Sorry I'm a bit late getting back to you, been a bit under the weather. All the information about the new High Route is on the GGW website. It's brand new and only just been completed in time for this season, so I suppose maps will be forth coming late on in the year or early next year. Anyway, I'm certainly hoping to try it out.

My turn to apologise: have been abroad and only just spotted this interesting topic. We are of course very interested in the new GGW High Route and you can, as Jack says, find the info online: this link takes you straight to an overview page with associated map downloads.

Thanks so much, Jack, for drawing this to people's attention. However, please note that the section west of Invermoriston won't be open before the end of June, whereas the section east of Invermoriston is open now, and I've walked it!

Spectacular views are available, but the gradients are very steep in places, so it's not for the faint-hearted!
