The Caledonian Canal isn’t just a fantastic feat of engineering, it’s also a great place for short walks in Scotland.
The Dochgarroch Loop is one of the most popular circular routes. The walk starts and ends at Tomnahurich Bridge in Inverness, Scotland. Suitable for all abilities, you can walk, run or cycle the 7.5 mile canal paths.
Or, you can walk in the opposite direction towards Clachnaharry. This is a popular Caledonian Canal Walk taking you to Caley Marina, where you’ll spot boats of all sizes, including the ‘Lord of the Glens’, the largest boat to sail on the Caledonian Canal. You could even stop off at Merkinch Nature Reserve or head for Clachnaharry Lock for some breath-taking photo opportunities. The whole walk is just under 5 miles and will take about 1.5 hours, but you can take a shortcut and cross the Canal at Muirtown swing bridge if you’re in a bit of a hurry.
