Grampian Mountains
The Grampian and the northern Highlands are distinct geological sheets which slide into the Great Glen Fault, fusing together. The Grampian Mountains include the Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles. Inhabited for at least the last 8000 years there are interesting stone circles to be seen in the countryside.


Caledonian Canal

This waterway runs for 66 miles southwest from Dochgarroch surrounded by mountains, a little south of Inverness, via Loch Ness, then Fort Augustus, Loch Oich and Loch Lochy, to Banavie, near Fort William, in the Western Highlands.
