Nice place to visit especially in the summer when there is a lot of activity in the locks. I prefer this one over... Neptune’s staircase because it’s in the town surrounded by shops and pubs.read more

Amazing feat of engineering from years gone by. Hundreds of people were watching the yachts going up through the locks... 1 by 1. Well worth a visit but can get really busy at times.read more

Beautiful town in a scenic area with foot paths along the canal. Popular tourist spot

Lovely place, well worth a visit. Very interesting watching the boats going up and down the locks. My only slight... criticism is there's a very smartly dressed piper near to the lock, take a picture of him at your risk, because if you don't pay him he will moan at you. I would have paid but didn't get chance before he had a moan, so l didn'tread more

Loved this beautiful place. The canal is more than 250 years old. Goes to show how technically advanced the Scots were... in the 18th century. Have a nice time with the bagpipers playing in the background of an idyllic beauty. Enough eateries around to please your palette.read more

A nice stop. Different from others. Plenty parking space (don't forget to add money into the meter as we totally missed... that it was a paid spot. We were lucky and didn't get a ticket). We actually had some boats passing through so could see the locks in action.
Some stores nearby (be warned as they aren't cheap)

Going up the locks on the Ros Crabs was an absolute delight. They are incredibly well made and huge.

Always busy at Fort Augustus with tour boats taking visitors on the loch. The Ribs go very fast on the loch and might... go down as far as Urquhart Castle,where as the other boat goes at a much slower pace, and slows down to show tourists interesting places on the loch. Well worth a trip especially on sunny,calm days.read more
