The Great Glen Way
Fiddler's and The Great Glen Way
Since the Great Glen Way was opened in 2002 many walkers have stopped at Fiddler's for refreshment and sustenance and also as a base to discuss their trek with fellow walkers. Our wide and varied menu is sure to please all tastes and our beer and whisky menus offer an unbeatable selection of Scottish ales and whiskies to help our Great Glen walkers relax after the days exertions.
Great Glen Way accommodation - why walk any further?
You've walked all day, you're tired and after you've checked in to your room and relaxed the last thing you need is to walk or organise and pay for transport to get your dinner. Ideally you want accommodation as near to the bar/restaurant as possible. Across the road from Fiddler's is Oakdale Rooms - please click here for more info.
Great Glen Way walkers
Our position is ideal for walkers as we are located on the village green in the centre of the village, which is directly on The Great Glen Way. Walkers can use Fiddler's as a natural rendezvous point and can enjoy a cool beer or a refreshing coffee before or after they check in to their room. In the evenings you can make use of our restaurant (please book a table) or our cafe bar and food truck for refuelling.
About the Great Glen Way
The Great Glen Way is 73 miles/117km in length. It runs from Fort William, in the west, to Inverness, in the east, with spectacular views and historical and natural heritage to be discovered all along the way. The route can be walked in 4-6 days, staying overnight in the various communities within the glen, and suits all levels of walker. For the less experienced it is the perfect introduction to long distance walking, being for the most part low-level and following mainly towpaths and woodland tracks. There are some challenging sections though, and the more experienced may wish to tackle a few munros or corbetts within reach from the route.
The route can be walked in either direction, however, walking from Fort William to Inverness you have the prevailing wind behind you and begin with the easier sections of the way.
