Scotland
Chapter «Loch Ness».
Castles, distilleries, mountains.

You have surely heard about Loch Ness. Probably more about its legendary creature. But not so much of its castles, distilleries, and beautiful hiking opportunities. And even less likely that you thought about sailing there! But here we go.

This adventure is about Caledonian canal, which connects south-west and north-east parts of Scotland. This time we will sail a motor boat with no open seas. No winds no waves. For a change.

Welcome on board!
