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.

16 June 2007Trail Leaders Workshop at Inverfarigaig
9 adults and 6 children today enjoyed a walk on part of The Trail of the Seven Lochs that takes in the the tracks behind the Forestry Centre at Inverfarigaig. The walk was led by Katy Martin the senior Highland Council Ranger. She gave a really informative insight into the flora and fauna of the area.
The next planned walk with the Rangers is on the evening of the 17th September and will involve the Dores Youth Club but other interested folk are invited. Just email us if you are interested in coming along.
Below are a couple of photos of today's walk supplied by Tom Foy who came along.
