Forth and Clyde canal cycling route: closed at Bowling for a week from 29 October.

News just in from our members who are also Sustrans volunteers. Emergency works to repair a fault in cabling which is linked to the local hospital power supply have started today between Portpatrick Road and Bowling on the Forth and Clyde Canal and are expected to close the canal side cycle route for a week.


If you were thinking of heading that way over the weekend or next week a new route will be needed. There is no indication of an alternative diversionary route on the information we have – sorry.
