As you cycle the Caledonian canal you will find this stunning spot and amazing Victorian engineering/art.... Be sure to... take a minute to have a good look. Try jumping up and down on it and let your family feel the tremors :-)read more
We were in Scotland for a weeks holiday and ate here twice it was so good. We could have eaten at cheaper places I.e.... the pubs by the canal, but The Boathouse has good food and a nice view. The service is great, with the servers making you feel welcome and relaxed. The food is good quality and tasty with enough to be filling without over doing it. The view of Loch Ness whilst sitting outside having a drink at sunset is awesome.
This historic bridge was engineered by James Dredge in 1854. It was used by traffic until 1932. It now serves as a... viewpoint for the River Oich and is right beside the Caledonian Canal. This is a nice place to stop between Fort Augustus and Invergarry. It is a natural meeting point.read more
Historic bridge built to replace an earlier stone bridge which got washed away in a severe flood.
The "chains" are made... up of cast iron rods linked together to give the suspension of the deck.
The stone towers, arched together at each end hold the chain link.
A newer stone bridge was later built to enable heavier loads to cross.read more
Great place. Stayed over in the rooms which are well situated, clean and well appointed. We had breakfast in this cafe... in the morning which was super tasty and reasonably priced. Plus, we loved the infographic wall art which provided some background information on the history of the Caledonian canal while we were powering up for the day.read more
We stopped by to snap some more of the incredible beauty highlands had to offer. We were lucky to witness the bridge... open up for boat to pass through at this location. Beautiful scenery and loads of kayaking lessons aroundread more
Interesting bridge with a different construction concept. Pretty views of the river Bellow and the valley around it.... Worth a quick stop if it's on your way, but wouldn't detour far to see it.read more
