Crinan Canal: Crinan to Ardrishaig

A one way walk along the entire length of the Crinan Canal linking the Atlantic with Loch Fyne at Ardrishaig. Overlooking the sea for the first part, and then passing the pretty locks at Cairnbaan, this almost level walk is good for bird watching. A bus links the start and finish.
