Ben Nevis (Beinn Neibhis) and Neptune’s Staircase

Fort William is of course the nearst town to Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis.

We never saw it – or not all of it anyway. There were always clouds surrounding the higher slopes as in this photo taken out of the train window somewhere around Banavie.

It must be great on a sunny day.

Banavie lies at the top of Loch Linnhe and is at the southern end of the Caledonian Canal where the so-called Neptune’s Staircase, a series of eight locks, raises the level of the water by sixty feet. It is the longest series of staircase locks in Britain.
