Caledonian Canal

Boating on the Caledonian Canal is a unique way to see Scotland's wilderness

The Highlands provide a backdrop of incredible beauty for your boating holidays in Scotland. During your Caledonian canal cruise, much of your time will be spent on lakes (lochs) nestled in the rugged valleys along the Great Glen, a geologic fault line that shaped the landscape of the region. Hilltop castles, quiet waterside towns, lake resorts, cosy pubs and rich, melodic bagpipes...The Highlands are an ideal destination to hire a boat in Scotland!
Great for... 
  • Spectacular mountain scenery from your hire boat
  • Hiking & hill walking
  • Whisky distillery tours
  • Fishing, wildlife & bird-watching
  • Loch Ness Monster spotting
