The Forth and Clyde canal was an amazing engineering project of the 18th century. It crosses 35miles across the narrowest point of Scotland, linking the Firth of Forth and Edinburgh in the east with the Firth of Clyde in the west. The canal has 39 locks and has links with the Union Canal and Monkland Canal.

On the way the Forth and Clyde canal passes close to Kilsyth, Craigmarloch, Twechar and Kirkintilloch. It then passes north of Glasgow city center, passing through Maryhill and eventually linking up to the River Clyde at Bowling.

The canal is used for tourism and leisure today, having seen a recent revival in canal holidays. The Canal Basin is the Edinburgh terminus of the canal.
