The Egg Shed is a brand new heritage hub in Ardrishaig. A Scottish Canals project, transforming a historic building into a bespoke interpretation and visitor centre, telling the story of the Crinan Canal & its communities.
What’s in The Egg Shed?
Visitors are invited to learn the stories of ‘Britain’s most beautiful shortcut’ within the exhibition space of The Egg Shed, and have the opportunity to purchase a souvenir in the shop. With artefacts from Scottish Canals displayed alongside items supplied by the local community, you can experience the rich history of the Crinan Canal within The Egg Shed. Plus, step inside our giant egg to hear local people share their memories of the canal.
Our gift shop contains a range of beautiful gifts for all occasions including nautical gifts, books, toys, jewellery and clothing. Where possible, we source our gifts from Scottish makers.
There’s also a multi-purpose community space within the building, which could become home to art exhibits, community workshops, and much more. For more information on this space and how to book, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
