Round Britain 2019 - Laggan to Bannavie

June 1, 2019
1 minute read

Travelling to Bannavie sees our crews take on Loch Lochy, the second largest of the Lochs along the canal, giving our crews more hands-on experience tacking their way across the wind and up the Loch towards Neptune's Staircase.

After leaving one of the locked sections of the canal, the boats set out across the water into a mixed bag of sunshine and cloud, the landscape ever changing as the light bounces off different crags and crevices along the way.

It's a tight squeeze!

The imposing sight of Ben Nevis, capped with snow even in May, looms over our crew as they reach Bannavie on the penultimate day of this leg. The famous giant is one of the most recognisable landmarks along our entire route, and a fitting end point for the day as our crews ready themselves to descend Neptune's Staircase tomorrow.
