Loch Ness

As arranged with the lock keepers the night before, we were lined up for a 9:30 start through the swinging bridge and then four locks.
Together with a handful of other boats we were guided through the process by the very helpful lock keepers.
Apart from some drizzle in the morning, we enjoyed a nice and sunny day, motoring past fields, houses, marinas more locks and bridges.
At about 13:00 we reached famous Loch Ness, the approximately 20nm long body of water where Nessi lives. Motoring past Urqhart castle was a beautiful experience.
A few hours later, we reached Fort Augustus and although it was only 16:00, there was no option to proceed up the next five locks anymore. We tied to the pontoon and took a walk through the beautiful small town.
