Fort Augustus

The Caledonian Canal connects the North Sea (at Inverness) with the Atlantic (at Fort William). As there is always a difference in the tide, they built in staricases that are operated today as they have been hundred years ago. It's an interesting spectacle to see yachts coming in, and you can easily spend an hour just sitting on the green enjoying the action at the staircase.
