Perth Canal projects

Description of Perth Canal projects: Canals proposed from the head of the Tay Navigation at Perth to the north-east and west. Never authorised or built.

History of Perth Canal projects: In 1773-4 James Watt reported it would be 'very practicable' to make a canal between Crieff on the Earn and Campsie Linn on the Tay. In 1790 it was suggested that this be extended to Loch Earn. Various schemes were put forward until the last survey in 1807.
