Aqueduct Cruises

Enjoy a 2½ hour cruise aboard one of our 40 seater boats ( Saint Magdalene or Saint Michael) from the canal basin in Linlithgow to the Avon Aqueduct, which carries the Union Canal over the River Avon.  The Avon Aqueduct is the longest and tallest in Scotland and the second longest in Britain, after the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in Wales.

Points of interest along the way are described in the Aqueduct Guide which is provided for your use during your trip.

The cruise departs at 2 pm, returning about 4.30 pm, on Saturdays and Sundays between Saturday 29th May till 26th September 2021.
