A photograph, taken on 22 February 1984, showing the Caledonian Canal during a period of reconstruction work on the locks at Fort Augustus. An outflow pipe can be seen in the foreground.

The Caledonian Canal extends from Corpach, in the Great Glen near Fort William, 100 kilometres north-east to Inverness. Designed by the prolific Scottish engineer Thomas Telford, the canal was built between 1803 and 1822 at a cost of £840,000. Initially intended as trade route, today it is mainly travelled by pleasure crafts.
