ScotlandSurrounded by breathtakingly beautiful hillsides clad in silvery heather, the Caledonian Canal stretches between Inverness, the capital of the Highlands in the north, down to Fort William in the south.
Be prepared for a magical journey through the vast Loch Ness, home to the most famous monster in the world; the islets of the shallower Loch Oich and the wild Loch Lochy, at the foot of which lies Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. En route, canoeing, windsurfing and water-skiing are readily available while on-shore, the Scottish Highlands offer something for everyone. Have fun eagle-spotting, walking and pony trekking, or get on your mountain bikes and cycle the tracks that line the length of the canal. Harry Potter fans can enjoy a magical day out travelling on the West Highland Railway line - one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys as used by Hogwart’s Express! Wherever you choose to cruise, you can be sure of tasting fine cuisine at lakeside and village restaurants - wild salmon, game and venison are regional specialities, and don’t pass up the chance to try some Haggis, accompanied of course by a glass of fine Highland malt whisky.
