A new 11 mile (17km) section has been added to the Great Glen Way walking route in the Highlands.

The new path, which cost £1m, has been described as a high-level alternative to part of the Loch Ness stretch of the 79-mile (127km) route.

The Great Glen Way goes from Fort William to Inverness and can take walkers up to six days to complete.

The new section has been officially opened by author and broadcaster Cameron McNeish.

Forestry Commission Scotland managed the project to create the path which gives views over Loch Ness and the landscape towards Ben Nevis.
