The village of Corpach is the point where the Caledonian Canal reaches the sea and is home to the series of locks known as Neptune's Staircase, the longest of its type in the UK. The village is home to the Snowgoose Mountain Centre, which provides canoeing, kayaking, sailing, mountain walking and winter climbing and is well worth a visit. Also in the village is Treasures of the Earth, which has a collection of crystals, gemstones and fossils. This part of Scotland is wonderful and Corpach offers an ideal base to explore the area.
From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.
