As with the above posting, George and I walked the GGW in May 2006. We used one of the accommodation booking services (Easyways) to put together our itinery and baggage transfer.
We stayed at Rhu Mhor Guest House in Fort William (www.rhumhor.co.uk
) prior to starting the walk - bit of a climb up to the GH but great views of distant Corpach - left my car there for the duration of the walk. On to Gairlochy (very limited accommodation) and like the last posting walked into Spean Bridge in order to spend time in passing at the Commando Memorial. Stayed at the excellent Distant Hills GH -- just type it into the web search and it'll pop up. Used their car transfer (£1pp) the following morning to get back to Gairlochy. On to South Laggan and 'Forest Lodge' (www.flgh.co.uk
) great hospitality but having passed the 'Eagle' ex-Dutch sugar beet barge at Laggan Locks we had booked in there for a superb evening meal. The following night Fort Augustus and the welcoming 'Sonas' (www.nessaccom.co.uk/sonas
) - on the road out of Fort Augustus but just past the start of the following day's walk. Then to Invermoriston and the popular 'Bracarina House' next door to the village hotel and tavern. If you arrive early in Invermoriston and have taken all the photos you want of the Invermoriston Falls and surroundings (the defunct water mill is often missed), try the Pig's Nose cafe some 200m or so from the Invermoriston Post Office on the Kyle to Lochalsh road (just round the bend) -- also does evening meals but closes comparatively early. On to Drumnadrochit and 'Tramps' an excellent and very welcoming B&B (www.lochnessbandb.com/tramps
) but a liitle further this side of Drumnadrochit than we thought -- still a short stroll into Drumnadrochit and 'Fiddlers' for an excellent evening meal - obviously picked the right night as we hadn't booked (www.fiddledrum.co.uk
) - oh yes, we bought the T-shirts. Finally on to Inverness and 'Fairfield Lodge', ( use web search 'Fairfield Lodge, Inverness' ) great hospitality and where George had left his car (having then caught the bus to Fort William) for our return to Fort William. Had a great night in 'Johnny Fox's' to round off an excellent GGW walk.
However, the www.greatglenway.com
'Accommodation & Services Guide' provides a much wider choice of accommodation with the majority of its entries having web sites.
Finally, if anyone uses www.multimap.com
for detailed location of places of interest, Inverness Caledonian Thistle FC is not where it's shown in Telford St -- it moved in 1996 and has been replaced by a supermarket !!
Hope you find the above of interest?
