I walked the Great Glen Way which runs along the canal for a significant part of the route. Great walk to take. 79 miles from Fort William to Invernessread more

The views are breathtaking and the staff are super helpful and very well informed. Only downside is that there are not enough mooring berths with electricity or water. Seems to be reserved for the rented boats more than your usual sailor and we're not there in the busy time of mid summer either. Maybe work on that bit?read more

Interesting to learn about the canal and the way the locks work. Picturesque setting. Quaint little cafes.

Quick bite stop. They serve soups, coffee, tea, cakes etc. Gift items available for purchase. When we were here, we witnessed the bridges opening so as to let the boats out. They leveled the water levels first. And proceeded to open two bridges while halting the traffic. This was not something that I had witnessed before and cannot guarantee this everytime you visit.read more

Usual range of local gift stuff some good quality. Interesting timeline for the history of the canal. Good cafe for snacks and light meals. Friendly staff..
Can spend lots of time watching boats negotiating the 6 locks. Staff might let you operate the lock gate controls. Great fun as long as it's not raining

Informative pictograms on the walls that give insight into the canal was super cool. Good breakfast selection at a reasonable cost. Awesome big mugs of delicious tea. Right next to the canal so great views. Friendly and fast service as well!read more

Recently opened in 2018, the Caledonian Canal Visitor Centre is charming and the perfect place if you want to buy nice souvenirs, grab a bite or learn more about the feat of engineering that the Caledonian Canal is. They have done a fantastic job refurbishing the building. Just wished their opening hours were a bit longer than they are.read more
