The Edinburgh & Glasgow Union Canal is 31 miles [50 km] long from Edinburgh to Falkirk and is linked to the Forth & Clyde Canal at Falkirk by the new Falkirk Wheel to continue the journey to Glasgow. Linlithgow Union Canal Society (LUCS) administers the Canal Centre and operates boat trips from Manse Road Basin every weekend from Easter until the first week in October with two boats from 2pm. You can cruise the calm and peaceful canal to the Avon Aqueduct in comfort on board the \"St Magdalene\" or journey the town stretch on \"Victoria\", a replica of a Victorian steam packet boat.

Edinburgh and Lothians

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland but is a third of the population of Glasgow. Perversely the city has no motorway access to the South and since the local transport links are excellent the city and surrounding area can easily be accessed without a car, arriving by train or plane. The highest concentration of Scotland's major attractions are found within the city and surrounding area - Edinburgh being the top tourist destination in Britain outside of London because its attractions are mostly concentrated in a central area. For the purposes of this guide, the city centre and East Lothian are listed seperately and the Lothians are defined as mainly the areas to the North, South and West of the city.
