Enjoy a lovely walk along the Forth and Clyde Canal, once a busy shipping link between the Firth of Forth in the west and the Firth of Clyde in the east, but now a haven for fishermen and canal boats. Walk by the incredible feat of engineering, the Falkirk Wheel, the world’s only rotating boat lift which joins two canals across Scotland - it has to be seen to be believed!

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.
