Caledonian Canal in Fort Augustus

The Caledonian Canal connects the Scottish east coast at Inverness with the west coast at Corpach near Fort William in Scotland. The canal was constructed in the early nineteenth century by Scottish engineer Thomas Telford, and is a sister canal of the Göta Canal in Sweden, also constructed by Telford.

The Caledonian Canal passes through Fort Augustus in a dramatic series of locks stepping down to Loch Ness.
