Seen at Fort Augustus

JMA_seen_at_Fort_AugustusFort Augustus is a small city in Scotland located on the A82 that runs from Glasgow to Inverness further to the North of Scotland. Because of the landscapes, this route is a real driving experience. The lower sections go through the Glen Coe (otherwise Glen of Weeping >>>), the higher sections – alongside lakes that are a part of the Caledonian Canal, including the famous Loch Ness.

On the picture one of the locks on the Caledonian Canal that connects the Scottish East coast with the West coast. The canal is around 100 km long. Only one-third of the length is man-made. The remainder is natural lakes. Constructed in the early nineteenth century by Scottish engineer Thomas Telford, Supposed to serve trade. Today is used instead for leisure purposes.

The picture was made from a bridge on A82 that crosses Caledonian Canal in Fort Augustus just below the Loch Ness. The view is to the South.
