Join the towpath by Lochgilphead and turn right to cycle through lush countryside. At Cairnbaan, there’s the first in a series of locks. To the north of the village lies Kilmartin Glen which contains hundreds of Cup and Ring marked stones, chambered cairns and stone circles dating from Neolithic/Bronze Age times. Continue on the canal by Móine Mhór (The Great Bog) to reach the attractive harbour at Crinan.
This is a short section of the Oban to Campbeltown section of the very much longer Caledonia Way (National Route 78).
