Edinburgh & the Lothians


Re-Union’s 60ft wide-beam boat is a beautiful, light and versatile venue space perfect for a range of functions. With a flexible layout and a capacity of up to 35 people, we would be delighted to work with you to make your event extra special.

The boat is moored at Edinburgh Quay and all trips start and finish there. Our most popular 2 hour hire takes you out to Slateford and back again. If you would like to start or finish your cruise elsewhere, please contact us to discuss this. You will have use of the boat's fully equipped kitchen where you can bring on board your own refreshments and use the tea and coffee making facilities or find caterers to see to your needs.

The boat is fully accessible to wheelchair users via a ramp and lift, along with a fully accessible toilet. If you are looking for activities on the boat, we can provide you with competent facilitators for teambuilding or strategy days, plus professionals who can lead a range of workshop activities for adults or young people exploring the canal's history, wildlife, beauty and biodiversity.

Re-Union supports and encourages communities to engage positively with the canal, to promote its heritage, environment and amenity, with a view to encouraging more local people to use the canal to their benefit. We have been operating since 2004 working with canal-side communities near the Union Canal, and have delivered a range of projects around volunteering, employability and lock-keeping together with environmental improvement and health & well-being programmes and community projects such as a community orchard and events including the Edinburgh Canal Festival. All projects aim to invest in our volunteers and trainees as well as developing links with canal-side communities. As a social enterprise, we offer private hire trips on our boat, the Lochrin Belle, as well as a reduced rate for community group and charity hire.
