Caledonian Canal, Dochgarroch Boat Hard

This feature is no longer extant. In its place is a grassy bank which has a series of floating pontoons accessed by walkways moored to it. This original boat hard appears to have been replaced by the more recent boat hard seen to the north of the north lock gate at Dochgarroch. The more recent boat hard has been recorded as a separate site.

Information from Scottish Canals Recording Project (AC and MM), November 2013
