This cruise starts via the Falkirk Wheel and the new Rough Castle Tunnel, two new locks and a mile of new canal to join the original canal at the site of the summit of the flight of 11 locks that used to join the two canals. The stalactites and rock-hewn sections of the Falkirk tunnel, a treat for the budding geologist.

Amongst the numerous minor aqueducts en route, three to note are the 12 arch, 85ft Avon Aqueduct and the Almond and Slateford Aqueducts, both at 75ft high. Beecraigs Country Park and the beautifully preserved remains of Linlithgow Palace on the shore of Linlithgow Loch are within easy reach of the canal. 

Edinburgh & return starts by going on the amazing Falkirk Wheel - A great start to your trip!
