Crinan, with its little harbour, canal basin and anchorage, forms the western sea end of the Crinan Canal and in the summer months the canal is always a colourful spectacle with passing yachting, cruising and pleasure craft as they navigate the canal waterway to connect the inland sea lochs, the Clyde estuary and the Kyles of Bute with the more testing and scenically spectacular sailing waters of the western Isles.
