Union Canal: Ratho to Lochrin Basin
Built between 1818 and 1822, the Union canal was designed by Hugh Baird and was originally used for transporting coal before competition from the railways caused it to close to commercial use in the 1930s. The final section of the canal leads into Edinburgh and ends at Lochrin Basin, near Haymarket.
