Soak up the unique canal atmosphere, keep your eyes peeled for deer,otters and eagles and navigate your way through working locks and gates. Marvel at the fascinating historical landmarks, pretty lochs and inlets and spectacular mountains. Our interesting commentary will piece the jigsaw together for you, recounting the famous Jacobite battles and pointing out castles and monuments.   Banavie is the ideal location to start your canal cruise. We are located at the top lock of Neptune's Staircase, just past the popular Moorings Hotel.
