Date: 13/02/2019

A stretch of the Caledonian Canal has been emptied of water to allow for lock gates to be replaced on the historic waterway. Scottish Canals has drained a 7,293m (23,927ft) long section in a process called dewatering. Most of the water to an average depth of 5m (16ft) has been pumped out. Lock gates at Fort Augustus and also about two miles (3km) south at Kytra are being replaced. The work started last month and is due to end in March.
