Corpach and Ben Nevis - Fort William

This postcard contains a painting with a view looking across the confluence of Loch Eil and Loch Linnhe, through the small settlement of Corpach, near Fort William, and across to Ben Nevis in the background.

The Caledonian Canal extends from Corpach, in the Great Glen near Fort William, 62 miles 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.
