Our trip along the Forth & Clyde Canal has taken us from Bowling to Glasgow. Now the canal heads into the countryside.
|The canal near Torrance on a gloomy winter's day|
|At the village of Twechar|
|The Martyrs' Stone beside the road between Kirkintilloch & Kilsyth. This commemorates two Convenanters executed in 1683.|
|Banton Loch, Kilsyth. This reservoir was constructed to provide water for the canal. It is also the site of the Battle of Kilsyth (1645) where the Royalist defeated the Covenanters with great loss of life.|
|Barges ties up for the winter at Falkirk.|
Stayed tuned for the final leg of our tour
