Nice trip, i was thinking of doing it myself one day, when i get a propper boat...

You should have told me in advance, i'd come to wave, im 1 hour west of fort william, and about an hour away from tobermory (Ardnamurchan peninsula.)

Thanks for sharing!

looks like a great trip

I have done the Calley Canal Twice, in a criuse boat that we hired at Inverness, took us a week of pottering around to get to Fort William and back.

Hoping I might get the chance to do it again next year, but will see if I am able to take my zapcat along with me, would be fun on Loch Ness.

Been through the Caledonian Canal many times - it's a fantastic place to visit (I sound like the tourist board!). Highly recommended. Some photo's attached. (1st is locks at Fort Augustus, 2nd is either Kytra or Cullochy and 3rd is loch lochy). Can also see http://www.waterscape.com/Caledonian_Canal
