Crinan Canal winter closure from 2 October 2022

Scottish Canals has announced that Crinan Canal will close to navigation from 4.30pm on Sunday 2nd October 2022, to the end of March 2023. They are developing plans for the relocation of boats at Bellanoch to elsewhere on the canal.

The good news is that this winter Crinan Canal will receive £4.5m investment to upgrade four lock gates and Cairnbaan Swing Bridge, as part of a £12m capital investment across Scottish Canals.

To facilitate the works, a substantial stretch of the canal, from Lock 9 to Lock 15 will be drained.
