The wonders of the Caledonian Canal 2022

The Caledonian Canal certainly is a special experience! With views such as these from on deck there is little to compare it to, and in Leg 3 of the Round Britain our crews are able to take in every bit of it.

This leg sums up what our cruise is all about. The exceptional engineering of the Thomas Telford designed lock staircase at Fort Augustus, and the ever-impressive Neptune’s Staircase – dwelling under the looming Ben Nevis – at Fort William, provide the opportunity for novices simply to spend time on a yacht to see what it is all about. The open waters of Loch Ness and Loch Lochy present the thrill of cruising under sail that we all grow to love.

Experience tells us that those who have chosen to join us on this leg, often with no yachting experience whatsoever, often come back again and again. And with views such as these to wake up to every morning who can blame them!


A big thank you to our skipper Andy for these remarkable drone shots!

You can follow the progress of the cruise in real-time on the map below. We have set the map to follow Monet automatically, but you can use the search tool to find Galliver II or Florence Agnes II if you wish.
