Attraction details
Owner description: We provide information and interpretation on the history of the Caledonian Canal, as well as an activities booking service and gift shop. Come and learn about the canal, sign up for some canoeing, whitewater rafting or canyoning, and take home some unique souvenirs made by Scottish designers and manufacturers. We have maps and information on how you can travel along the length of the Caledonian Canal, or the Great Glen Way between each of the stopping-off points, how long it will take, facilities, etc. The canal and lock gates outside our door make up the living museum which is the Caledonian Canal.

“Informative”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

Enjoyed the display, story of the canal construction concise and reader-friendly. The room is quite small but we arrived at a quiet time, so it was easy. Nice quality and stylish T-shirt purchased for my husband.

“small but interesting”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This was a very small but interesting little spot that told of the building of the Caledonian canal. Plan on spending 30 min max, but it is right next to the locks on the canal and they are fascinating to watch as boats come through frequently.

“The Canal + animal farm”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Get a take away coffee and watch the boats pass through.
There is an animal farm in the town which is a great place for families with kids.
