Caledonian Canal by rail, road and boat

4 Days / 3 Nights

Take this great tour by rail, road and of course boat and experience the amazing scenery on offer following The Caledonian Canal through the Great Glen between Inverness and Fort William.

Starting this independent tour from your local railway station (see stations below) you will travel by rail through Scotland and the Cairngorm mountains to The Capital of the Highlands, Inverness.
