Crinan Canal

In 1801, the Crinan Canal was opened to link Loch Fyne with the Atlantic Ocean at Crinan so that ships could have a safer route, avoiding a treacherous journey around the Mull of Kintyre. Today it provides a beautiful cycling experience with some interesting bits of history and archaeology along the way.
