Your charity for Scotland’s environment

Scottish Waterways Trust

Transfer of projects to Keep Scotland Beautiful

Thank you for visiting the Scottish Waterways Trust – the charity which creates brighter futures for people, communities and wildlife across Scotland’s canals. We are sorry to share that, in the face of significant financial challenges, the Scottish Waterways Trust has now ceased to operate.

Since 2000, we have been connecting people with the heritage, wildlife and green open spaces of our canals and inspiring people to get active, improve their health and mental wellbeing, employment prospects and community life. To secure the future of our innovative canal-based projects and the positive impact our work has on local communities, we are pleased to say that, from 1st May 2019, our canal college® and Canal Heritage activities will be taken forward by environmental charity, Keep Scotland Beautiful.
