Our final day on the Scottish Highlander finishes with an elegant Captain’s Dinner

Editors Note: Twenty-six-year old-Will Garrett and his father Edward sailed on the Scottish Highlander luxury barge operated by European Waterways earlier this month. Will filed a daily report and these are being published throughout this week. His father’s review of the trip appears here.

DAYS 8-9: Gairlochy to Banavie

This morning we visited the battlefields of Glencoe, followed by a visit to the Ben Nevis distillery. This was a neat tour that delved into the secrets of the various stages of whisky preparation, followed by a taste of a dram or two. In the afternoon, we cruised to Banavie.

Neptune’s Staircase

There, we got to see Neptune’s Staircase – the longest staircase lock in the UK, which lifts boats 64 feet. The locks were originally hand-powered, but have been converted to hydraulic operation, a spectacular feat of engineering. The day finished with a farewell Captain’s Dinner on board.

DAY 9: Banavie
