Floral Display, Fort Augustus

This photograph shows the floral display of the Loch Ness Monster at the Caledonian Canal locks at Fort Augustus.

Fort Augustus is situated on the south west end of Loch Ness where it meets the Caledonian Canal. It was originally named after St Cummein and in Gaelic the name is still Cille Chuimein.

General Wade built a fort in the area in 1730 and the village grew up around it. The fort was named after one of George II's sons who was to become Duke of Cumberland, the famous 'Butcher' of Culloden. The remains of the original fort were incorporated into a Benedictine Abbey in the 19th century
