Flotilla of Light
A Flotilla of approximately 14 barges has been arranged to cruise the Union Canal from Almond Aqueduct to Leamington Bridge on Saturday 24th November. As dusk falls this will become a Flotilla of Light between Slateford Aqueduct and Leamington Bridge.
The Flotilla will take 10 – 15 minutes to pass any point and residents and towpath users are welcome to wave the Flotilla through their communities at approximately the following times:
11:00am: Depart from Almond Aqueduct
1:00pm: Hermiston Bridge (number 10) lunch-stop
2:30pm: Depart from Hermiston Bridge towards Wester Hailes
3:45pm: Slateford Aqueduct to prepare decorations and lights
4:15pm: Depart Slateford as an organised Flotilla towards Edinburgh
5:00pm: Harrison Park
5:30pm: Leamington Bridge
It is hoped this will become an annual event with more boats joining the flotilla, and for communities to become involved and light the way.
