2022 Midweek Breaks in Scotland
The Forth & Clyde Canal to Glasgow and Bowling and the Union Canal to Edinburgh join at the Falkirk Wheel and together are known as the Scottish Lowland Canals. Our hire base at Falkirk is located at the base of the Falkirk Wheel, one of the most stunning backdrops to any canal in the UK. The Wheel, around the height of eight double decker buses, is the world’s first rotating boat lift, replacing a former flight of 11 locks!
Cruising routes over a midweek break include the Kelpies and return (8 miles, 28 locks, 8 hours cruising in total), Ratho, via Linlithgow and return (48 miles, 6 locks, 16 hours total cruising hours), Central Glasgow (Applecross) and return (44 miles, 10 locks, 17 cruising hours in total) and, for active parties, Edinburgh Quay and return (64 miles, 6 locks, 22 hours in total).
