Canoeing Day 2: Loch Lochy to Loch Ness

Loch NessWe set off from the Northern bank of Loch Lochy at about 6:30 in the morning into much more favourable conditions. The last stretch of Loch Lochy was a truly beautiful experience before we pssed into Loch Ceann and made the portage around Laggan Locks. Passing along another man made section of the canal we passed under the swing bridge at Laggan and into the beautiful Loch Oich. After this truly wonderful section we passed into another sheltered section with two more protages around the Locks at Cullochy and Kytra. A further hours paddling brought us down in to Fort Augustus where we portaged around the flight of Lochs for our first glimpse of Loch Ness. After a short break for some grub we set off on to Loch Ness. We opted for the isolated southern bank away from the busy road. Lisa spotted a tiny landing sutiable for camping which is where we made our camp for the night. Distance paddled: 25 Kilometres in 5 hours.
