Edinburgh and Glasgow Union Canal – Day 1

Turns out while in Scotland, I’ve stared walking anther canal without really meaning too. This time, The Union Canal (Edinburgh and Glasgow Union Canal).

So far, I’ve (along with Nick and Neil) walked from the very start, which is close to the Falkirk Wheel to Polmont. A distance of 9.58 miles.

Check out the route, we took over at www.strava.com/activities/2441792248

Been a Class 385 train at long last!

I’am so happy, yes maybe I need to get more! At long last, I’ve been on a Class 385 train. The last number of times, I’ve been in Scotland they have been withdrawn, from service for a number of reasons!

Got say, that I do really like them! Just hope, next time, I get to do a longer journey, since I only went from North Berwick to Edinburgh Waverley. So need to try them out on the Glasgow-Edinburgh route.
