  Crinan Canal, Lochgilphead
JPW061 Crinan Canal, Lochgilphead
Work started on the canal in 1794 under Sir John Rennie and it was opened in 1801. In the nine miles from Ardrishaig to Crinan there are 15 locks and the canal reaches a height of 65 feet above sea level. Every time a boat goes through the locks about 300,000 litres of water are used. No fewer than seven reservoirs feed the summit section to ensure that the Crinan Canal does not run dry. Every year two to three thousand vessels, mostly pleasure craft, use the canal.
