Kilsyth to Falkirk
East of Kilsyth the trail meets the Forth and Clyde Canal, which in John Muir’s time provided a busy shipping link between the Firth of Forth and the Firth of Clyde. Now the canals are cherished places to enjoy quiet fishing, cycling or just messing about on the water. If you’d like to relax and watch some wildlife, try visiting nearby Dumbreck Marsh, or if industrial heritage floats your boat, float off on the Falkirk Wheel which transports shipping from one canal to another.
