Following a road traffic accident where a vehicle struck the barriers at the Fort Augustus Swing Bridge, damage has resulted in the bridge being inoperable to boat traffic. Our staff are working with BEAR Scotland to carry out repairs.

Small craft may be able to pass underneath the bridge however it remains closed to large craft.

This page will be updated with further information as it becomes available. You can also follow us on Twitter @ScottishCanals for updates.
