there are a couple of old threads which you'll find helpful if you use the Search tool.

Also the BW Scotland Staff are very helpful if you call/email them.

Did it in a day on the Round Britain 08 race, so can't help much with those details - I can tell you that the Lochs don't have speed limits though! It is also a fantastic trip, have a great time!

Did the Caley Canal this year and spent a week at Fort Augustus/Loch ness with the RIB. Really enjoyed it, flat calm, stunning scenery and fresh water great for the engines!!

See website below for travel times booking info etc. Very helpful staff at each lock.
