Gairlochy by the Caledonian Canal
Gairlochy is a tiny community by the caledonian canal, not far from Spean Bridge, and in view of Ben Nevis. Gairlochy is a great place to visit
The River Spean flows through the gorge and alongside the Canal on its way to the sea. There is a small community with scattered houses including a few B & Bs and self catering properties. Take a look at Gairlochy Holiday Park for self catering holiday caravans and chalets.
The area has great views of Ben Nevis and the Grey Corries and an extensive beech forest provides delightful walking and cycling paths. The Great Glen Way passes nearby. The Clan Cameron Museum at Achnacarry is about 4 miles from Gairlochy, and well worth a visit. So too are Ka-Aig Falls and Loch Arkaig - a huge inland fresh-water loch.
