Forth and Clyde Canal part 1

The Forth and  Clyde Canal was built in the late 18th century  and connects the Forth at Grangemouth with the Clyde at Bowling. The Glasgow section can be rather lovely, as I hope the following pics show. I used to commute by bike along the canal from Maryhill to Bishopbriggs every working day, so I have a lot of canal pics.  I have therefore split the canal bit of the album into two sections, this one and one consisting just of swan pics. See

The flats seen earlier in autumn sun - still very pretty in winter
