Lots of lochs and locks: the Club rowed from Corpach, near Ben Nevis, into the Caledonian Canal, up Neptune’s Staircase Locks, along Loch Lochy, Loch Oich, and Loch Ness and thence to Inverness. The Caledonian Canal is approximately 60 miles in length. 22 miles of this is man-made, with the remainder being formed by natural fresh-water lochs. Consisting of 29 locks and 10 swing bridges, this coast-to-coast link cuts through the spectacular Great Glen; a stunning location for boats in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.
