The base is situated right beside the Falkirk Wheel visitor centre on Forth And Clyde Canal so a trip on the Wheel is right on the doorstep.

Do not pay to enter the site just tell them you are here for a Canal Boat Holiday.

Falkirk is our most northerly location and the only one based in Scotland and is located between Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The Scottish Lowland Canals are quite different to those in England, The Forth and Clyde is a sea canal and is much wider than the average English canal and The Union Canal is a contour canal and has no locks and no bridges .
