It’s a glorious at Laggan today, after a frosty start the skies are blue and the sun is beaming, as it was such good weather the men decided to move some more boats down to Loch Lochy. It’s just a couple of weeks until we are open, so everybody is working very hard to get the boats ready for the season.
It was all hands on deck yesterday as we started moving our boats from their winter moorings on the Canal back down to our operating pontoons on Loch Lochy.
It was a good day to move them through, better than doing it doing it today as it is blowing a hoolie!
A couple of fishing trawlers came through yesterday while the locks were open.
The Canal is open at the moment by arrangement, the spring hours start on Monday 24th March – they will be open from 8.30am to 5.30pm.
So far today we have seen a private yacht called Endeavour, (the crew were heading for Gibraltar where they are meeting up with some other crew members, the journey is to commemorate the 2nd world war and has been organised by ex Marines) and there have also been a couple of large Trawlers from Scandanavia.
