On a glorious sunny day in September I visited Fort Augustus staying at Ruby Grant's B & B at Foyers and I visited the Waterways display at the side of the Caledonian Canal at Fort Augustus and then decided to watch the Cruise Ship move through the canal as she was heading to Loch Ness . The ship captain on this large cruise ship had only inches or so on either side to get through the canal but she made it with no scratches but a professional ship captain of course at the helm ! Going through the canal system too were the little hire or privately owned boats and they moved on . Normally when Ive been before with my wife there are often the small boats going through the canal system and sometimes too a Fishing boat from north east Scotland but this time a very large Cruise ship but suddenly in the lochside area waiting to move forward into the canal system was a Reserve lifeboat coming from Inverness and heading for the Island of ISLAY to be held there for 3 weeks or so while their regular lifeboat was being serviced by the famous RNLI . A magnificent RNLI boat compared to the then modern lifeboats of the 1950s and 1960s !
I spent ages just watching the boats and ship moved through the canal system on a glorious sunny day in September !
