A fascinating journey between Scotland's two major cities, Glasgow and Edinburgh. The refurbishment of the Forth and Clyde and Union Canals has once again established the historic waterway link across Scotland. This masterpiece of 18th century engineering has aqueducts, lifting and swing bridges, locks, junctions and now the 21st century Millennium Wheel at Falkirk. Travel along the level towpath and experience the peaceful landscape in a unique way -wildlife, heritage, history, industrial archaeology, together with modern Scotland and its friendly people. Glasgow, Scotland's largest city has a wealth of architectural gems by amongst others Charles Rennie Macintosh and Alexander "Greek" Thomson, a fine municipal art collection and the magnificent Burrell Collection. Edinburgh Castle perched high on its volcanic rock looks down on a modern dynamic capital city where medieval lanes and elegant sweeping terraces hold sway over ten centuries of history, mystery and tradition.
