Scottish Canals promises a “journey like no other” thanks to the introduction of a new online booking system for boaters.
Following a successful pilot of the new system on the Crinan Canal in August, those looking to explore Scotland’s waterways are also able to book transit licences for the Caledonian Canal in advance of their journey, on Scottish Canals’ new microsite: scottishcanals.co.uk/YCW2020.
The new digital licences and booking process form just one part of ensuring customers benefit from an unrivalled experience when visiting Scotland’s inland waterways. From the myths and majesty of the Caledonian Canal to the wildlife and wonder on the Crinan Canal, or the life less ordinary to be experienced on the Lowland Canals, Scottish Canals promises a journey like no other, from planning through to exiting the sea lock.
To coincide with the online booking system, Scottish Canals has also released a Journey Like No Other video, which showcases the beauty and appeal of Scotland’s inland waterways. From sailing down Neptune’s staircase and waking up to a view of Ben Nevis, to spotting rare pine marten and basking in an epic starlit sky on the Crinan Canal, there’s an adventure for everyone to enjoy.
Scottish Canals offers the opportunity to transit the waterways with your own vessel or a hired boat. For information on hire boat operators on the canals, customers are advised to visit the Boating section of Scottish Canals’ website.
