"WHEN at Fort-William, the tourist from Glasgow has accomplished nearly three-fourths of the journey to Inverness, through the great glen of Scotland. Few tourists, therefore, return from this point without having sailed up the Caledonian canal, to the capital of the Highlands. The first stage, between Fort-William, and Letterfinlay, is far from inviting. At Corpach are three locks, and a mile beyond it, a series of eight locks, called Neptune's staircase. Each lock is 180 feet long, 40 broad. and 20 deep; "

From this I would guess you've got about 20 feet.

Post us a photo or two, please.
