Welcome to Corpach to Loch Lochy
A mile east of Corpach, at Banavie, is Neptune's Staircase, an impressive flight of eight locks that allows boats to climb 20m to the main reach of the Caledonian Canal. The B8004 road runs along the west side of the canal to Gairlochy at the south end of Loch Lochy, offering superb views of Ben Nevis; the canal towpath on the east side makes a great walk or bike ride (6.5 miles).
From Gairlochy the B8005 continues along the west side of Loch Lochy to Achnacarry. From Achnacarry the Great Glen Way continues along the roadless western shore of Loch Lochy, and a dead-end minor road leads west along remote but lovely Loch Arkaig.
