We plan to run these at four-weekly intervals during the spring and summer months, interspersed with a similar series of walks along the Union Canal in the east.

Completed in 1790 to link the east and west coasts of Scotland, the Forth & Clyde Canal is approximately 35 miles (56 km) in length. After falling into disuse in the 1960s, having succumbed to more modern means of transport, the Forth and Clyde Canal Society was formed in the 1980s and eventually succeeded in a campaign for the canal's restoration as part of the Millenium Link project, which also saw the canal reconnected to the Union Canal by means of a boat lift (The Falkirk Wheel).

Our fourth leg of the series will take us from the Stables Bar through Kirkintilloch town centre to the Auchinstarry Basin, near Kilsyth, finishing at nearby Croy station where we can catch a train back into town.
