Discover the Crinan Canal by Boot

Walk or run along the Crinan Canal, the views are worth the effort as you cross from one side of the Mull of Kintyre to the other.

Follow the towpath along a remote Scottish canal in an idyllic setting. Take in almost the entire route of this scenic canal – but cover no more than nine miles!

Take a look at these podcasts for the Dalriada Project’s Crinan Canal Video Trails to get a taste of this easy walk, from Crinan to Ardrishaig and back!
