Argyll and the Isles Sights

Crinan Canal

  • Body Of Water/Waterfall

Updated 11/02/2013

Fodor's Review

This canal opened in 1801 to let fishing vessels reach Hebridean fishing grounds without making the long haul south around the Kintyre Peninsula. At its western end the canal drops to the sea in a series of locks, the last of which is beside the Crinan Hotel. Today it's popular with pleasure boats traveling to the west coast.
