The Caledonian Canal, starting at Corpach in the west and ending at Inverness in the east, is a 60 mile short-cut across the country. It saves on the long voyage around western Scotland.
38 miles of it include Loch Lochy, Loch Oich and Loch Ness with the remaining 22 miles on canals. There are 29 locks on the Caledonian Canal, Neptunes Staircase near Fort William having an impressive ladder of 8 locks over 500 metres.
British Waterways (Scotland) own it and there are plans to repair the canal and upgrade facilities.
