We recently joined some friends on their boating holiday along the Caledonian canal. A short boating holiday was an ideal way to spend a long weekend.

The canal links several lochs from Inverness down to Fort William, so at times you are on quiet an expanse of water, especially Loch Ness. From Glasgow or Edinburgh the trip north to the Caledonian canal takes about two hours by car on good quality roads.

5 Places to Escape the Crowds in the Lake District

The path led on into the upper reaches of the valley. The only sound here was the river somewhere below on my left in a rocky ravine where it flowed back down towards the valley floor spreading into a wide alluvial plain. A lone raven soared above the Grey crags up to my right and snow blanketed the mountainside higher up. I made my way on up to where the path crossed an ancient stone wall at a stile and was met by a surprise.
