About Ardrishaig

Ardrishaig is located on the shores of Loch Fyne in Argyll.

Ardrishaig Harbour has a close association with Crinan Canal; if the Canal had not been built Ardrishaig would have had no harbour. Ardrishaig Pier was first opened in 1873. The harbour is arranged into two parts: the North side is where the Crinan Canal Locks are and the TimberLink is active; further South are areas for pontoons and anchoring of boats. The Crinan Canal itself no longer carries freight, although the harbour at Ardrishaig is an important element in Scotlands timber trade. Approximately 30,000 tonnes pass through the harbour each year. However, a programme of refurbishment and modernisation has boosted capacity to 150,000 tonnes.
