          West End
          Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
          industrial Britain had their most desirable
          neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
          Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
          citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
          grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel

          Hello, is it static only or can we cruise the canal?
          15 December 2016|
          Answer
          Response from skippercam | Property representative |
          We are static accommodation only. Boats can be hosted from Falkirk for navigating the canal. Capercaillie or Falkirk hire boats.
