The Union Canal strategy

Since its repair in 2001 by the Millennium Link project, the Union Canal has come from being a little known part of the city to one of the city's key assets. The canal is now enjoyed daily by people from across Edinburgh. There has been a large rise in people

  • boating 
  • rowing 
  • walking
  • cycling.

To help improve the canal, the Council and Scottish Canals prepared the Union Canal strategy. This provides a focus for new development including

  • new moorings
  • lights
  • things to do.

For more information please see the Scottish Canals website.

As part of the strategy, a brand for the Union Canal has been created. The brand is free all for canal groups and users.
