The Forth and Clyde Canal was finally opened again on the 25-27th May 2001. To mark the event a flotilla of boats made the passage from the new lock near the motorway in Grangemouth, via Falkirk, the Kelvin Valley
and onward to Glasgow.
Below are some pictures of the boats as they arrived at Auchinstarry Basin where they overnighted on 26th May.
The canal has always been famous for big course fish but the biggest ever seen is shown below!!
