Corpach is the western terminus of the Caledonian Canal, which links Scotland’s east and west coasts, avoiding the difficult passage around the north of mainland Scotland and through the Pentland Firth. The sea-lock is available HW±4 hours, within canal operating hours. The basin does not have permanent mooring facilities, and is usually occupied by craft waiting to leave the canal, or to proceed to the east. There are shops and other amenities nearby, including the railway from Fort William to Mallaig. More information can be obtained, and a Skipper’s Guide downloaded, by visiting the Scottish Canals website, or by contacting the Canal Office.
