Scotland’s first canal artist-in-residence is exhibiting works featuring Lochaber stretches of the Caledonian Canal.

Lesley Banks has captured the spectacular sights of the nation’s inland waterways on canvas and is inviting the public to go ‘gongoozling’ as the Caledonian Canal paintings go on show at Eden Court, Inverness.

Entitled ‘Gongoozler’, a term for someone who takes joy from watching the world, and one or two boats, pass by on canals, this exhibition focuses on the majestic Caledonian Canal from the perspective of the pedestrian on the footpath. From Corpach to Clachnaharry take a visual journey along the towpath.

Meet Lesley on the afternoon of Saturday March 3 between 1pm to 5pm to learn more about the Gongoozler project. The exhibition runs until March 31.
