Banavie, Scotland
Banavie is a small village located on the Caledonian Canal, in the Highland Council Area of Scotland. It is located about four miles from Fort William Town Centre and offers exceptional views of Ben Nevis mountain. It was the original base for climbing the Ben before the construction of the pony path and the establishment of the observatory on the summit in 1883.

The village is perhaps most famous for " Neptune 's Staircase", the biggest set of locks on the Caledonian Canal. In summer railway enthusiasts favour the canal bridge as a spot to photograph the Jacobite steam train on its daily journey to or from Mallaig. You can join it at Banavie Station.
