Canals Across Scotland: Walking, Cycling, Boating, Visiting

By Hamish Brown

This entertaining and informative book will be of practical benefit to all who discover the historic Union Canal and the Forth & Clyde Canal, whether walking, cycling, boating or visiting the Falkirk Wheel or the Kelpies in Scotland. Canals Across Scotland provides detailed towpath information, suggests what to see and do along the way and in the towns passed. The book is full of fascinating historical background, knowledgeable descriptions, practical information, good stories and is beautifully illustrated. Side trips to the Antonine Wall, which stretches from the Firth of Forth to the Firth of Clyde, countryparks or to towns like Linlithgow, Falkirk, Kilsyth and Kirkintilloch, often by circular walks, are also described. The canals are for leisurely, timeless exploring during any season and this updated guide will be an essential companion.
