      This boatel was our first canal experience. I chose it because of the convenient location and with three of us, having two rooms was a bonus. The location was everything for this boatel. Literally we walked everywhere from here. However, the negatives add up a...More

      We are static accommodation only. Boats can be hosted from Falkirk for navigating the canal. Capercaillie or Falkirk hire boats.
