The sailing area in this part of Scotland is varied and offers something for everyone - nature is beautiful and relaxing, and you'll find both small charming villages, including a rich selection of cosy pubs, and access to the metropolises of Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Besides, it is easy to get to the base in Falkirk, when flying into Edinburgh.
Depending on the length of your holiday and your desires - you can choose from several exciting sailing routes:
The Glasgow route follows the Forth & Clyde Canal with seven locks each way. It winds through idyllic countryside, in several swing bridges and past the villages Auchinstarry and Kirkintilloch, who is said to have more churches than pubs. Glasgow with fine shopping and the historic Cathedral is the target of this holiday itinerary.
The Edinburgh route follows the Union Canal. First past the popular The Union Inn, then navigate through three locks and then experience lock-free sailing past the famous Linlithgow Palace where Mary Queen of Scots was born. It is an exciting experience to sail on top of the beautiful Almond Aqueduct's high stone arches - and from there will also soon be able to see Edinburgh Castle on the horizon.
