Wonderful way to fill a day. A very gentle hike , all on the level apart from gentle steps around the canal gates. Good idea to have a car to collect you at the other end - especially if you pause for lunch at any of the great facilities at Crinan outlet.

We saw it at its best on a hot sunny day. The place looked beautiful and is spectacular. I can't wait to return to walk the length of the canal.

What a lovely tranquil place, the drive to this small but great place is great although the road does only have passing places at times. The tearoom staff were very friendly and we had a very nice cream tea.

I found no disabled access or public W/C at the harbour. W/C accessibility was contained in a new purpose built shower block. Access was restricted to boaters only

Beautiful Peaceful and very tranquil setting. Ideal for taking a stroll or a bike ride. The scenery is lovely as are the people you meet who are travelling in the boats along the canal. Would highly recommend a visit.

Had a lovely cycle from Ardrishaig to Crinan and back along the canal. It was unusually dry and we've been having such wet weather these last few weeks so as todays forecast looked fine we chanced our luck and it paid off. A very well kept path!! Had tea and scones when we arrived in Crinan at the coffee shop... More

Scotland has some dramatic scenery but The Crinan canal and the village of Crinan are very pretty, manicured and beautiful. the views out towards Jura is spectacular and an evening walk along the canal a delight!

We stopped in at Crinan to see the start of the canal and have a wee walk too. A gorgeous little cafe at the start of the canal is attached to the hotel there and offered us the opportunity to have a great bacon roll while watching boats cycle through the first locks on the canal. A couple of old... More
