Tips

    This is the start (or end) of the Caledonian Canal which links the lochs of the great Glen with locks, and also part of the Great Glen Way walking and cycling route.

    The flight of eight locks raise the water level on the Caledonian Canal by 62 feet (19 m), and takes boats approximately 90 minutes to navigate this short stretch. This is the longest flight of locks in Great Britain.

    Nice place to cycle to Fort Augustus or Inverness. Nice restaurants and coffee places.
