Winchburgh Developments Ltd officially handed over the Marina to Scottish Canals after a flotilla of boats all arrived under the new Marina bridge.

Commenting Fiona said;

“It was a very special moment to be at the official opening of the Winchburgh Marina and be on one the first canal boats to come under the new Marina bridge and into Winchburgh Marina.

“The official opening was marked with a flotilla of different types of boats sailing down the historic Union Canal which connects the Marina to Winchburgh.

“Local organisations and school pupils joined the flotilla and the opening was a great day for the community.
