We had a nasty cross wind as we entered the Caledonian Canal making a tricky start to our passage.  We spend one night at Caley Marina, then head up to Loch Ness.

We attach ourselves to the only buoy available in Urquhart Bay then explore the castle.

We spend a night at Fort Augustus, then had a great day sail back down Loch Ness.

The center of Inverness is a good walk from the marinas so we did not spend much time in town.  One of the more interesting features is a iron foot bridge across River Ness.
