Cullochy Lock is the first lock of a series of five lock near Ft Augustus on the Caledonian Canal's descent towards the Moray Firth and the North Sea. From here you can drive through Glen Moriston and stunning highland countryside to romantic medieval Eilean Donan Castle, setting for the film Highlander. Eilean Donan Castle has an idyllic island setting with commanding views of three sea lochs and frequent sightings of otters, dolphins and the Isle of Skye. Following the abortive Jacobite rising of 1719, the ruins of the castle were abandoned for 200 years until the 20 th century when a complete reconstruction was undertaken.
