For those considering a UK holiday that is a little different, Canal Boat Hire in Scotland provides a good opportunity to see the countryside at a leisurely pace. Narrowboats, barges and cruisers are all available for those who want to take advantage of the hundreds of miles of canals on offer while relaxing in comfort and style.
Whether you want to holiday on your own, with your partner, your family or a group of friends, Canal Boat Hire in Scotland is suitable for everyone. There are several popular routes which can be followed, with many people choosing to follow the route across the width of the country, starting at Falkirk and taking in Edinburgh and Glasgow and returning back to Falkirk. This can easily be completed in a week and locks are operated by waterways staff, so the route is ideal for those who are new to boating. There are also canals with no locks if you prefer not to have to deal with them.
Those considering Canal Boat Hire in Scotland will find that canals are a little different from those they may have sailed on in England or Wales. For example, the Forth & Clyde Canal is wider than most standard canals, so perhaps less intimidating when you meet a boat coming in the other direction! Routes are only suggested routes and there is no obligation at all to follow a set route. Canal Boat Hire in Scotland allows you to plan what you want to see and when without following any kind of schedule.
Taking a canal boat holiday in Scotland can be the perfect antidote to today’s modern lifestyle. It provides the opportunity for you to leave the rat race for a while and enjoy a slower pace of life while not having to check emails every few minutes or answer the telephone.
