Cruising on Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canal

Caley Marina, Inverness.

If you can't view Loch Ness from the mountain tops, then the next best place is from a Cabin Cruiser on the Loch itself. We enjoyed a charter in June 2010 from the excellent Caley Marina.

After professional tuition we were ready to take on the various locks on the Canal and bound in no time for Loch Ness. In spite of an afternoon start, we made good time through the Canal and along Loch Ness to berth for the night at Fort Augustus.

A memorable experience in more ways than one, but that's a story for another day!
