Are you brave enough to look for the mysterious Loch Ness
Monster? Take a boat trip along the
Caledonian Canal and Great Glen and see if you can spot this
elusive creature. Sail past the ruins of the impressive Urquhart
Castle, once a medieval stronghold.
Highland Clans and clan life are at the heart of Brave's story.
And it's not just Loch Ness where you'll encounter ancient
Scotland. All along the Caledonian Canal and Great Glen remnants of
clan legend can be found. Paddle under Invergarry Castle
overlooking Loch Oich, once the stronghold of the Clan MacDonnell,
cycle to the dark story at the Well of the
Seven Heads, and walk along the Dark Mile where legend has it
that Bonnie Prince Charlie escaped to after the Battle of
The Crinan Canal lies in the ancient coastal
kingdom of Dalriada and is surrounded by prehistoric stones and
carvings left by Scotland's ancient inhabitants. Over 800 ancient
monuments can be found within a 6-mile radius.
Although wild bears no longer roam Scotland's great outdoors as
they do in Brave, some of our ancient inhabitants have returned to
the forests and waters of Knapdale. After being hunted to
extinction over 400 years ago, wild beavers are
once again living in Scotland.
There are so many ways to explore Scotland's canals and the
Great Glen, whether by boat, boot or bike. And many opportunities to
delve deeper into the myths and legends surrounding them.
