"Speedboats, fishing boats, and sailboats of every size all provide a wonderful moment of enjoyment as they navigate their way along the canal. Boats are very much a way of life at Crinan."

The historical Crinan Canal starts right outside the Crinan Hotel and the old towpath makes a good walk or bike ride.

Other local activities that can be arranged in the area include Seafari adventures in speedboats to see the seals, the Corryvreckan Whirlpool and the nearby islands of Jura and Scarba.

Sailing charters are available nearby. Clay pigeon shooting, mountain biking, horse and trail riding can be arranged.  

Within driving distance of the Crinan Hotel there are some spectacular golf courses: Machrihanish, Dunaverty, Carradale, Tarbert, and – needing to take a ferry crossing to play it – Machrie golf course on the Isle of Islay.

One of the most popular activities at Crinan is one that is very simple to follow and merely entails watching the ever changing views of the boats arriving at or leaving from the last lock on the canal, which is situated right outside the hotel.
