The Forth & Clyde Canal starts (or ends) its 35-mile journey across Scotland in the village of Bowling, running alongside it is Sustrans Route 754 towpath, which continues on to Loch Lomond.
They are outside spaces once used for commerce, now re-designed to encourage active travel and a closeness with nature.
In this photo story Clydesider volunteer photographer Chris McCaughey shares some of the many ways the canal and nearby public parks are enjoyed by both locals and visitors.
