Saturday, 12 October 2024: On the Canal

Our walk in this month takes us back to old haunts and, given a lovely day, is one of the most attractive we have ever done.

Meeting at Muiravonside Parish Church on the Forth and Clyde Canal we join the canal and turn west to the basin on Bethankie Bridge (which is a tunnel not a bridge!). Here we board a canal boat, cross the spectacular Avon Aqueduct, and go west to Linlithgow canal basin. A short walk takes us down to the centre of Linlithgow.

Those wanting a longer walk will go round Linlithgow Loch and back to the Canal via the River Avon. Those wanting a shorter walk can find lunch in Linlithgow and then rejoin the canal for the walk back to Muiravonside. This is one of the finest walks in central Scotland. Do join us!
