OK here is what it says "A slipway is located at Caley Marina, Canal Rd, Inverness. Access and use should be arranged directly with Caley Marina, telephone 01463 236328. A British Waterways slipway suitable for small shallow draft vessels is located at Tomnahuich. Customers wishing to use this service should contact the Canal Office to arrange access.
Small craft may also be launched on to Loch Ness from the beach at Dores, and from a shallow slipway at Inchnacardoch near Fort Augustus"
I spoke to BW about a year ago about a possible trip and they certainly implied it was possible to launch and recover easily at both ends (4m boat). Not sure if they meant via Caley though - as I haven't got as far as executing the plan yet.
