Corpach Sea Lock & viewpoint

Corpach is a rather scruffy, roadside suburb on the Road to the Isles a couple of miles west of Fort William. It's also the start of the Caledonian Canal, and the location of one of the most popular photographer spots in Lochaber. An old boat on the shore of Loch Linnhe provides the foreground to a Ben Nevis backdrop, with Fort William also visible across the water. We have to admit, we don't quite understand the fascination for rusting ships on tourist blogs and social media, but we thought we'd better join the club anyway. The sea locks themselves (where you park) are also an attractive place.
