Dalmuir Drop Lock
Dalmuir Drop Lock
The Forth and Clyde Canal passes under Dumbarton road at Dalmuir by means of this unusual drop lock. In order to give boats sufficient headroom, 2,000 cubic metres of water are pumped out of the lock, which is refilled after the boat has passed under the bridge. The process takes about 40 minutes.
