People come to Scotland from all over the world, drawn by the
stunning scenery and rich cultural heritage of the country.
A canal holiday allows you to journey through the country,
taking in the landscape and hearing some of the stories of
Scotland's past as you go. Or you might choose a canalside cottage as a base for
exploring the canals on foot or by bike.
Carve your way by boot, bike or boat and enjoy all that the Great Glen has to offer. Sail across the famous Loch Ness, explore Ben Nevis by foot or cycle your way along the excellent towpaths.
The Crinan Canal is the perfect base to see the stunning scenery of mid-Argyll. Arrange a yacht charter or book up a hotel or even a picturesque holiday cottage for a family holiday to remember.
Like the Caledonian and the Crinan, the Forth and Clyde Canal provides an important route across Scotland for all sorts of leisure craft. A trip along the canal might become a vital and engaging part of your holiday as you head through the canal to the sailing territory on the West coast.
Explore the city of Edinburgh from the disctinctive perspective of the canal, then head inland to marvel at the Falkirk Wheel and join the Forth and Clyde canal.
Working in partership with the Vivat Trust, Scottish Canals have recently refurbished seven canalside properties which are now available to book as self catering holiday accomodation.
