Union Canal

Edinburgh, Scotland

Family Friendly

Union Canal runs from Falkirk to Edinburgh, and is one of the two Lowland canals in Scotland. It was revealed in 1822 and it was for first successful, but the building of railways, especially the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway, opened in 1842, reduced its worth as a transport medium. It fell into slow commercial decrease and was shutted down to commercial communication in 1933. It was formerly closed in 1965. The canal is registered as three individual Scheduled monuments by Historic Scotland according to the three former counties, Midlothian, West Lothian and Stirlingshire, through which it runs.
