Due to the continued dry weather, Scottish Canals would ask that those on passage conserve water by sharing locks with others.
In particular we would ask that you maintain groups on the flights between locks 5 and 13 so that we may minimise the water drawn from the summit reach.
We also request that no boats stop overnight between locks 5 and 8 or between 11 and 13. This enables us to adjust water levels as necessary in the early morning or late at night with minimum disruption to visitors.
We will endeavour not to cause undue delay and hope that your co-operation will help us maintain levels of service throughout the summer period.
Vessels with Deep Draught
During this particularly dry spell of weather, Scottish Canals are unable to offer passage to vessels with a draught over 2mtr from Monday 19th July until further notice.
