Crinan Sea Lock
Crinan is one of the west coast’s best known havens, thanks to the popularity of the Crinan Canal as a shortcut from the west coast to the Clyde. The sea-lock is open seven days in high season. Apart from the total shelter offered by the basin and a good anchorage outside, Crinan has a hotel with a bar and coffee shop, and a boatyard offering the full range of boating services from repairs to moorings to fuel, chandlery and more. The area abounds in interesting walks, either along the canal, or on the forestry trails to the south. More information can be obtained, and a Skipper’s Guide downloaded, by visiting the Scottish Canals website, or by contacting the Canal Office, see above. There are 39 long term berths at Bellanoch Basin, with shore facilities.
