From Gairlochy follow the shore of Loch Lochy on forest tracks through land owned by the Cameron clan. Achnacarry was home to one of the toughest commando training camps, and the nearby museum highlights the remarkable conditions they endured. After Clunes the road continues on fire tracks above Loch Lochy all the way to South Laggan and the locks.
There is a wonderful pub and seafood restaurant on a moored barge at Laggan Locks called the Eagle Inn; great for an afternoon pint or an evening meal. Your accommodation is generally a mile or so from the locks.
