Hi Sister Eleff, this is a ladder of eight locks that raise vessels to a height of 70 feet above sea level over a distance of 500 yards.

Then a there is one more at Dochgarroch which takes the elevation up to that of Loch Ness . The height of the Loch is more or less constant being controlled by a weir .
