The Crinan Canal starts near the pretty and bustling town of Ardrishaig, which is situated on the beautiful shores of Loch Fyne.
The canal is one of Scotland’s picturesque waterways, known to sailors the world over for its spectacular surrounding countryside and friendly lock keepers. The Canal Office is situated in Pier Square, a few yards from the sea-lock, from where the main street stretches north.
Ardrishaig offers various places to eat and drink, and shops include a Co-op grocery store and a post office. There is lots to see and do in the area. More information can be obtained, and a Skipper’s Guide downloaded, by visiting the Scottish Canals website or by contacting the Canal Office.
