[Laggan Locks]

The middle chunk of the Caledonian Canal is probably the quickest for boats to navigate in calm weather, with many miles using the open waters of Loch Lochy and Loch Oich. There are also far fewer canal locks to contend with; one exception is at Laggan, where there are a couple more to wriggle through. This pair of devices preserve the water level on the northeast side, which at about 35 metres above sea level is the highest stretch of the 60-mile waterway. For those of us arriving overland, there's a little car park accessible from the A82 road. A small cafe serves refreshments in the summer months, and there are also a couple of snazzy-looking glamping bothies (called Bonnie and Braw) if you fancy prolonging your stay to an overnight one.
