Route-researching this Scottish coast-to-coast. It goes a mere 60 flat miles, all on smooth tarmac canal towpaths. The Clyde Canal goes thirty miles from Bowling to Falkirk via Glasgow; from Falkirk, the Union Canal goes another 30 miles to Edinburgh. Ideal for families, trundlers, and lazy cycle bloggers looking for an easy ride.
