The Living on Water Initiative

The Living on Water Initiative is being run by Scottish Canals to bring new vibrancy to Scotland’s canals.

The goal of the initiative is to stimulate the growth of the residential and commercial market by creating high-quality moorings that will form safe, friendly and lively communities.

Its aims include:

  • To encourage more people to live, work and play on the water.
  • To provide waterside communities with an enhanced ‘sense of place’.
  • To stimulate ‘active living’ and drive economic growth.

The initial phase of the initiative is focused on Edinburgh and Inverness. It will then be extended to other parts of Scotland’s canal network.

Living on Water is part of an overall strategy to deliver sustainable development and improvements to Scotland’s canals and towpaths. Over the past decade, significant progress has been made. Living on Water will continue this success story into the future.
