We are currently planning what life will look like for Scottish canals when lockdown restrictions begin to lift and this includes welcoming everyone back to our canals, destinations and tourist attractions when it is safe to do so.

We’d like our biggest canal champions – that’s you! – to help us create a unique image which will celebrate all that’s great about Scotland’s Canals. We’re asking you to get involved by sharing pictures of the letters which spell ‘Welcome Back’.

Bonus points if you take your picture by the canal or one of our destinations (but only if it’s safe and reasonable to do this – no unnecessary travelling, please!).

What to do:

  1. Choose one of the letters below:
    W E L C O M E  B A C K
  2. Get creative – draw your letter on paper or card and decorate it as bright and bold as you can
  3. Take your letter with you on your walk on the canal – but stay local
  4. Snap a picture with your letter (more bonus points for kids and dogs as glamorous assistants!)
  5. Send it to communications@scottishcanals.co.uk or Tweet us @ScottishCanals


Please note that by submitting your picture to Scottish Canals, you give permission for Scottish Canals to use the images for the Welcome Back campaign. Information shared with us will be processed in accordance with our privacy policy.
