If you are considering Caledonian Canal Boat Hire then you are in for a treat. Some of the most fabulous of all the Scottish scenery can be witnessed navigating the waterways of the Caledonian Canal. You can sail the full length of Loch Ness right up to Fort William if you have enough time during your break, alternatively, there are plenty of places to moor up and sightsee along the route.
The Caledonian Canal was made to cut through several natural Lochs in Scotland. It was opened in 1822 and is a shortcut from the North Sea to the Atlantic Ocean. The journey along the waterway will take you through Loch Ness, Loch Oich, Loch Lochy and Loch Linnie. You can see sights such as Urquhart Castle on the banks of Loch Ness, and perhaps one of the most photographed of all the loch castles due to its location.
If you wish to explore the area then Caledonian Canal Boat Hire is the best option. The area is unspoilt by tourism, even in the popular tourist attractions of Loch Ness and Fort William the region is still under developed which helps to retain its charm. There is fabulous scenery to be found all along the route.
The route itself takes about 3 days full time cruising. This means that for those who have a week or longer to spare they can explore the route at a leisurely pace and take in more of the land based sights along the way. Those who have less time to spare will not miss out though as the views themselves and the peaceful surroundings is enough to make a 3 day break feel like a week.
Caledonian Canal Boat Hire is the ideal way to holiday for those looking to leave the hustle and bustle of daily life behind.
