Completed in 1822 to transport coal and minerals to Edinburgh, the Union Canal is approximately 31 miles (50 km) in length. After falling into disuse in 20th century, having succumbed to more modern means of transport, the Union Canal enjoyed a new lease of life as part of the Millenium Link project, which also saw the canal reconnected to the Forth & Clyde Canal by means of a boat lift (The Falkirk Wheel).

The canal was built to follow the contours of the land thus avoiding the need for locks – consequently, this third leg of the series will cover the winding stretch of the canal that circumnavigates the hillier part of West Lothian.
