Explore the rich social and industrial history and heritage of the Union Canal as it flows from Edinburgh to Falkirk by boot, bike or even the comfort of your own home!
The Union Canal Unlocked app unlocks the story of our capital’s canal as you travel along the 11 miles of inland waterway to the world’s first and only rotating boat lift.
This app contains a collection of the Union Canal’s heritage and stories gathered during the Union Canal Unlocked project. The purpose is to encourage local people and visitors alike to explore and get to know the canal’s history and points of interest.
The app contains an interactive map that allows users to find points of interest along the length of the historic waterway. Historical information, photos, sound clips and animations are all included.
