Overview

This trail was made as part of the West Boathouse project. The West Boathouse is the long, red-roofed building on the riverbank, east of the tidal weir. It was built in 1905 for the two rowing clubs that still call it home. It is currently being restored by Glasgow Building Preservation Trust.

Rowers love getting out on the river and enjoy watching the wildlife. You might see some of them out today so give them a wave.

This walk includes lots of activities, games and things to think about - don’t worry if you can’t do everything in one trip, you can always visit again and try something new. The kinds of wildlife you see change depending on the time of day you visit and the season so it's good to come back at different times of the year.

There is one public road crossing at Kings Road. Watch out for cyclists and occasional vehicle traffic along the walkway. Public toilets are available at the People's Palace but be aware opening hours may be subject to sudden change due to Covid.
