Discover the Crinan Canal by Bike

Enjoy the tranquillity of the towpath, or take the road that follows the route of the canal for a faster ride.

From Ardrishaig to Crinan is just 9 miles, so a great family cycle ride.

Along the canal

Starting from Ardrishaig, follow the main road for a few hundred yards and take the turn up to Lock 4. There you have a choice: cross the bridge and take the surfaced road to Oakfield, or alternatively take the grass towpath, which leads on to Oakfield and beyond to Cairnbaan.

From Cairnbaan you may either take the main road or towpath. To enjoy a relaxing ride with minimum traffic try the towpath, which will take you all the way to Crinan.

Share a great space!
