Caledonian Canal:

The Caledonian Canal, which runs from Fort William to Inverness, was opened in 1822. It by-passed the circumnavigation of the north coast of Scotland and helped create employment in the Highlands.
We take a trip on the Caledonian Canal and describe why the canal was built and how it worked. It was designed by Thomas Telford, one of Scotland's greatest engineers. By using dramatic aerial footage, we show the many different locks at Neptune's Staircase near Fort William.
