In the nearby vicinity is the Caledonian Canal and the famous Neptune’s Staircase. Built in 1803 and designed by Thomas Telford, the Neptune’s Staircase is made up of ladder eight locks that raises boats up 70 feet from sea level over just 500 yards and the longest staircase lock system in Britain. A visit to see this impressive 60 mile feat of engineering is not to be missed.

Set amongst the finest backdrops in Highland scenery, Glenfinnan is a tribute to the Jacobite clansmen. The Monument, at the head of Loch Shiel, was erected, in 1815, in tribute to the Jacobite clansmen who fought and died in the cause of Prince Charles Edward Stuart. It was designed by the eminent Scottish architect James Gillespie Graham. The raising of the Prince’s Standard took place at the head of the loch on 19 August, 1745, in the last attempt to reinstate the exiled Stuarts on the throne of Great Britain and Ireland.
There is also a visitors centre, snack bar and shop.

A little further round the corner is the stunning and unspoilt Sanna Bay beach and can be easily reached by foot from the public car park. Possibly one of Scotland’s best kept beaches…an absolute must
