Crinan Canal

Often referred to as Britain’s most picturesque shortcut the Crinan Canal welcomes thousands of yachts on the water and cyclists and walkers on the banks each year.

Cutting through ancient Dalriada, in the heart of Argyll and Bute, this 200 year old, nine mile canal, links Arrdshaig at the Firth of Clyde to the picturesque village of Crinan on the Atlantic and is a great chance to see incredible wildlife; deer, red squirrels osprey and dolphins in the sea at Crinan.
