Having lived in Lochaber for a number of years and then spent an equal number of years in the merchant navy, I didn't know the Caledonian Canal was twinned with the Rideau Canal in Ontario. On a visit back north I visited the Corpach basin and found an information board on the subject. Hopefully you can read the text from the thumbnail. I have also visited the Rideau Canal ( sadly in the summer so I haven't seen it frozen!) but didn't see any similar information board, does one exist?
