Caledonian Canal Dredging

We are currently undertaking investigations into a number of our assets across the canal network which will shape future projects.

Additional £1 million funding from the Scottish Government has allowed us to undertake a programme of dredging works for 2020-21 across the Scottish Canals network. As part of this we will be dredging a section of the Caledonian Canal in 2021.

Dredging works will be undertaken between Laggan Locks and Laggan Swing Bridge from February until the end of March 2021. There will be no disruption to towpath use during this time, however this section of the canal will be closed to navigation.

This page will be updated as works progress.
