Officially opened in 1801, the Crinan canal runs from Ardrishaig on Loch Fyne, across the Kintyre peninsula to the sea at Crinan; nine miles of waterway that has been described as ‘the most beautiful shortcut in the world’. Telling the story of the canal’s planning, investors and construction, the work of the engineers James Watt Jnr and John Rennie, and progress and problems up to the present, Marian Pallister provides an in-depth look at this significant feat of British civil engineering.
