Sea Lock Gates

It’s called a lock gate, but to all intents and purposes it’s a solid metal door – or actually a pair of doors – holding back the waters of the Caledonian Canal at the point it joins up with the Beauly Firth in Inverness. When the tide is in, the water levels are pretty much equal both behind and in front of the lock gates, but when the tide is out the water behind in the canal remains high while in front the sea level ebbs and flows.
