Crinan Canal closing for repairs

Postby Nick » Wed Nov 14, 2012 8:40 pm

The canal will close to transit boats from Monday 26th November 2012 to Thursday 3rd January 2013 for repairs to a cill at Lock 9.

Boats wishing to make passage before the closure must arrive at Sea Lock no later than 10am on Friday 23rd November 2012. Draindown will begin later that day so any vessel not clear of the summit will remain in the system until 3rd January 2013.

The Sea Locks at Crinan and Ardrishaig will remain operational Monday to Friday, by appointment, between the hours of 9am and 3pm. Customers wishing to lock in or out of Crinan or Ardrishaig should contact the Canal Office by telephone on 01546 603210.
