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.
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.
