Duke of Normandy II, Crinan Canal basin
Duke of Normandy II, Crinan Canal basin
Loch Crinan beyond. The Crinan Canal runs for 9 miles from Ardrishaig in the east to Crinan in the west, bypassing the long sea passage round the Mull of Kintyre. The Crinan Canal Act was passed in 1793, but financial difficulties required the assistance of a government loan to enable completion in 1809. The canal was never really financially viable and hit problems with land slips. Main users now are pleasure craft and some fishing vessels.
