Breach at Cullochy Weir

Breach at Cullochy Weir

Tue 10 Mar 2015

Recent exceptionally high water levels in Loch Oich have swept away a section of Cullochy Weir, just north of Aberchalder Bridge, causing a breach in the Caledonian Canal. Whilst Scottish Canals' engineers work to survey, stabilise and repair the breach, paddlers, walkers and boaters have been asked to keep clear of the area.  An update on the expected reopening date will be given as soon as it is available.

60 miles in 5 days

It is an epic 60 mile (95km) journey crossing Scotland in 5 days and conquering the formidable open waters of Loch Lochy and Loch Ness, a challenge in itself.

From South to North

It is normally easier to paddle the Trail from Fort William in the west to Inverness in the east with the prevailing wind behind you.
