Every year nearly 2000 boats make the journey along the 9 miles of "Britain's most beautiful shortcut". Once an important commercial connection with the Western Isles most of the traffic is now pleasure craft. We call the area 'Dalriada'- an ancient coastal kingdom at the Heart of Argyll.
The Crinan Canal links Loch Fyne at Ardrishaig with the Sound of Jura, creating a vital waterway through the Kintyre peninsula in the Heart of Argyll.
It is an outstanding piece of engineering with a dramatic history.
