    Don't want to mess with my previous post and have the pictures vanish.

    That bridge might be small but it is magnificent.

    Over 60 odd bleedin' bridges on that canal and that's just heading one way:laugh:

    I assume you enjoyed the run through the Dark Tunnel just along the towpath:ohmy:

    The wheel and tunnel are closed.
    I hadn't been on the Union before today.
    I wanted to see how to get on to it from the Forth and Clyde.
    Went up the hill, through the car park , saw a few signs up a short street. Not very helpful but I had a look and went over a railway bridge and found the Union path.

    Not sure if we are going to use it for a Glasgow to Edinburgh return 100 mile run or not.
    Any route suggestions welcome.

    If it's still closed,here is a workaround...

    From the Wheel, you head up the path that follows the fence, heading to the aquaduct. You go through one smaller tunnel (there is a cut mark on it as you enter) then cycle eastwards and after the bridge you found with the cut mark, there is a path which heads up a short path to Slamannan Rd,(I just walk my bike up the steep access bit), turn left then look for and first right,follow a blue sign up a side track, up past a kids nursery, keep on the path which brings you to Lionthorn Rd, cross the road and work your way a path to another road, turn right to head to California, and across the road is the entrance on to the Union Canal.

    I managed a 50 to the Kelpies and that was from Port Glasgow.
    The run through to Edinburgh is good but 60 odd awkward bridges
    This may help from Falkirk HERE

    The Dark Tunnel is over 660 yards long, an amazing and freaky cycle through, oh, Burke and Hare worked on this canal so watch yourself. It's worth the visit just for the eerie lighting effects.

    Feel free to let me know if I can help further

    Your path up to Slamannan Rd, is literally just before where I took this photo (the Dark Tunnel entrance)

    Thanks for all that.

    We might look at going to the Kelpies then along to Kincardine bridge , over into Fife, back via Forth Bridge .
    No idea what the route back to Glasgow would be .
    Possibly , back to Falkirk and the canal.

    Obviously they were slackers, able to go off and earn some easy money on the side.
