Fort Augustus War Memorial Hall

War Memorial Hall

Originally built as a public hall by Lord Lovat between 1892 and 1900.
Used as a drill hall from 1900 – 1908 by the Imperial Yeomanry regiment established by the 14th Lord Lovat.
In 1908 the Territorial Force was created and The 1st and 2nd Lovat,s Scouts Yeomanry were created under orders of the Highland Mounted Brigade from the Imperial Yeomanry regiment.
In 1914 the Haldane Reforms changed The 1st and 2nd Lovat,s Scouts Yeomanry to 1 Lovat,s Scouts (A Squadron), who continued to use the Memorial Hall as a drill hall.
The 4th Battalion, Cameron Highlanders (E Company) were also formed at this time, and most likely built and moved to a new site, what is now the Village Hall formerly the Drill hall and later the TA Centre.

After 1918 the Memorial was added to the front of the hall and renamed War Memorial Hall.

The Caledonian Canal Running Through The Centre Of Fort Augustus

Caledonian Canal Fort Augustus

Linking the lochs of the Great Glen, the Caledonian Canal provided a safe route for naval and merchant ships to avoid the treacherous Pentland Firth and Cape Wrath.

Loch Lochy, Loch Oich, Loch Ness and Loch Dochfour provide much of the route along the Great Glen between Fort William and Inverness. Only relatively short artificial canals were required to link them together, with water supply guaranteed.

William Jessop and Thomas Telford head the list of engineers involved in the impressive project. At more than 50 yards (46m) long, its locks were huge by the standards of the time, with many of them arranged in staircases of interconnected locks. The massive eight-lock flight at Banavie, known as Neptune,s Staircase, is little short of breath-taking. The entire canal smacks of similar engineering feats on a grand scale.

There are 29 locks, 4 aqueducts, 8 road bridges and 2 rail bridges, along the length of the canal.

The canal was mechanised in the 1960s. Instead of using capstans and manpower, hydraulics are now used to operate locks and bridges. One original cast-iron bridge remains. Moy Bridge, near Gairlochy is still operated by hand, and the bridge keeper has to row across the canal to open both sides.

22 miles of the 60 mile waterway are man-made. The remaining 38 miles are made up of Loch Lochy, Loch Oich, Loch Ness and Loch Dochfour.

Work started in 1803, with over 1500 unskilled farmers digging the canal by hand. Opening in 1822, it still took another 25 years before the canal was fully complete.
