Comment from a walker on the South Loch Ness Trail:-
I did the SLNT in September with friends. This was a sponsored charity walk over two days. I found navigation from north to south tricky in places but realised the other direction would be easier both physically and to navigate (due the lie of the land. I'd love to know the story of the Fair Haired Lads Pass
This walk has everything woodland, forest, moor, history.... Thanks for all your work.

17 August 2010A good run!
I ran the route on Monday 5th July starting from the Inverness end completing it in 10 hours (with a 30 min break at Inverfarigaig). There seemed to be a couple of crucial junctions where either the markers weren't there or were overgrown so I would say that a map is essential. The track down to Bunachton is quite hard to get down at the moment as I think the heavy snow in winter has damaged a lot of trees. Other than that there were no access issues and hats off to the people who devised the route as it cleverly links up some great areas and tracks. Inverfarigaig FC carpark (about 2/3rds distance) has some superb toilets to get clean water and have a quick wash.
