I stayed in the hotel overlooking the locks and loved to sit and watch the boats moving up and down the locks. It is also a lovely walk along the canal

This is a marvellous feat of engineering.

This has to be the most impressive set of canal locks in the UK
A nice gentle stroll by the water not far from the town

7 locks 8 bridges to cross if you want to, or just walk up the slope, interesting to watch the locks fill and open

Sailed up from Loch Ness to visit Neptunes Staircase, absolutely amazing scenery and views of Ben Nevis. Will definitely return.

Stopped here as part of a tour

Worth a stop for an hour. There is a children’s play area, toilets and a cafe - and of course Neptune’s Staircase!
