Safeguard our canals for future generations to enjoy

Please consider making a donation to help us to safeguard Scotland’s canals for future generations to enjoy. Our waterways are more popular than ever, and hosting events puts a strain on both the built heritage of the 200-year-old structures and Scottish Canals’ limited resources. Your support will help protect the incredible environments of Scotland’s canals and ensure they continue to provide great venues for all kinds of community and charity events.
