Dochgarroch is the first lock you will go through after you leave our boat yard in Inverness. It is a very picturesque spot with many private boats and yachts. Scottish Canals toilet & shower facilities are located next to the lock and there is also the option to plug into mains power ashore at certain moorings (please ask the lock keeper to assist with using the shore power).
Inverness is just about 5 miles away by road.
Restaurants, Bars & Cafes
Oakwood Restaurant – It is the only one at Dochgarroch and very popular with the boating community. Superb meals using finest local produce, such as hand dived scallops from Shetland and prime Orkney beef from an award winning Orcadian butcher. Table booking is recommended and please bring your own bottle, as the restaurant is unlicensed. There is also a gift shop section selling a wide range of Harris Tweed products - handbags, purses, gloves & hats, jackets & coats of the highest quality. Furthermore leather goods, a wide selection of ladies & gents scarves and of course Nessie. Please check opening times as the restaurant is not open all week.
