Boat Hire

Glasgow and return from Falkirk - 3-4 Nights

Cruising Time Per Day 6.5/10hrs • Total Locks 8


Four evenly spaced locks after Bonnybridge take the canal up to the broad, straight section before Auchinstarry. The majestic Campsie Fells rise from the valley that the canal shares with the River Kelvin and the scenery is superb as the canal then follows contours for the rest of its journey to Glasgow. The canal arm south towards Applecross Street Basin in Glasgow looks down to where the River Kelvin winds from the university past the museums and botanical gardens. A major port with a shipping history back to the 18th century, Glasgow has a wealth of museums and collections. The art galleries and museums of Glasgow are never without examples byCharles Rennie Mackintosh - there is even a church designed by him in the city.
