Directions for Boat Trips


Our boat trips operate from Port Buchan in Broxburn.


Coming from the East (Edinburgh and the M9), take the road towards Broxburn. Go straight through Broxburn’s main street (A899), through the traffic lights. You will see a hump in the road ahead of you, this is the canal bridge where the road goes over the canal. As you reach the peak of this bridge, you will see a turning on the right. If you come to another set of traffic lights with a fire station on the left, you've gone too far!


Coming from the West (Livingston and the M8, J3A), take the A899 towards Broxburn. Go straight through Uphall’s main street, go straight on at the traffic lights where Strathbrock Centre will be signposted on your right. Through the next set of traffic lights where you'll see the fire-station on your right just after the junction. You will see a hump in the road ahead of you where the road goes over the canal. Take the turning on the left just past the bus-stop.

Parking is not restricted and you can usually park alongside the canal, but this is a residential street so please be considerate of local residents.



Head for post code: EH52 6HN



Due to the fact we have put our passenger boat, Bluebell up for sale (see explanation under Welcome on our home page), we regret that we are unable to offer boat trips in 2022  We will be starting a Fundraising campaign to raise funds to purchase a new passenger carrying boat.  We can still be contacted by telephone, email or via our facebook page. 

Please follow us on facebook for updates on the current situation and canal news in general.
