The Scottish Highlands region
The Caledonian Canal cuts across the Scottish Highlands and is one of Europe's most beautiful inland waterways. It comprises of the world famous Loch Ness, beautiful Loch Oich and Loch Lochy all linked together by 22 miles of canal. All of the locks and bridges on the canal system are operated by keeps which makes them very easy to negotiate.
There are some lovely places to visit along the route including Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness. The area has some great cycle tracks and wonderful opportunities for walking, pony trekking or whatever outdoor activity you like to pursue. There are also some great restaurants to eat out at along the way so you don't even have to cook on board if you don't want to!
