Canal Community
Falkirk Wheel Boat
Falkirk Canal Connections is here to create a better future for our canal-side communities.

Falkirk sits at the heart of central Scotland’s canal network and the old industrial heartland of the country. In recent years, our canals have been revitalised, creating new, world-famous tourist attractions along the way. Now, the canal network is offering exciting opportunities for the local communities it runs through.

Falkirk Canal Connections brings together organisations and community groups to deliver big changes to local areas. Together, we’re delivering projects that improve the environment, create new jobs and opportunities, and help everyone enjoy the canals on their doorstep.
