There are a number of rivers and canals in Loch Lomond, The Trossachs, Stirling & Forth Valley. Go coarse or salmon fishing on the rivers, or even sail coast to coast between Edinburgh and Glasgow on the Union and Forth & Clyde canals via The Falkirk Wheel.

Falkirk was shaped by the Scottish industrial revolution and during this time the Forth & Clyde and Union canals played a key role in transporting raw materials and finished products. In 2002, as part of the Millennium Link project to connect the two canals, the world’s first rotating boat lift was unveiled, allowing boats to travel across Scotland from the Atlantic Ocean to the North Sea. After exploring the visitor centre at The Falkirk Wheel, you can climb aboard a boat in the basin to sweep cleanly through the air and take in the remarkable surroundings.

The rivers of Teith, Devon, Allan and Forth all provide excellent opportunities for salmon and trout fishing, and Stirling Council offer great value permits. Coarse fishing can be found along the Union Canal near Falkirk.
