This route is perfect if you don’t want a long day and fancy a little exercise with some good Highland scenery.
We will follow East side of the canal which was completed in 1822 all the way to Dochgarroch where the canal opens up to Loch Dochgarroch. It’s at this point the Loch splits into two directions, River ness and the canal.
After taking some photos, we will cross over to the East side of the canal and start our cycle to the entrance of the canal which is Clachnaharry.
Clachnaharry is a former fishing village and also used to have a railway station stop on the North line out of Inverness. The village is very popular for walks with it’s stunning views of Moray firth and Ben Nevis to be enjoyed.
After we finish with more photos, we will head back to Inverness passing the Caledonian basin where we will see local house boats.
We will allow 2 hours for this route.
