VISITORS to Loch Ness in Scotland will soon be able to discover the delights of the less well-known south shore with the launch of a new 28-mile trail.
The trail stretches between Loch Tarff near Fort Augustus to Torbreck on the edge of Inverness via Whitebridge, Foyers, Inverfarigaig and Dores, taking in the south side of Loch Ness.
Featuring newly-installed way markers and interpretation panels, it also benefits from a brand new bridge over the Allt Breineag, near Ardochy, for ease of access.
In the longer term there are plans in place to connect the South Loch Ness Trail to the existing Great Glen Way as well as the Great Glen Canoe Trail, expected to be completed next spring.
For more information on South Loch Ness and points of interest along the trail, the South Loch Ness Heritage Group booklet (£3) can be purchased at the Dores Inn, Foyers Cafe and Whitebridge Hotel along the route.
