Our final stop



This trail was made as part of the West Boathouse project by Ingrid Shearer, Deirdre Molloy and Kirsty Crawford. The West Boathouse is the long, red-roofed building on the north riverbank, east of the tidal weir. It was built in 1905 for the two rowing clubs who still call it home and has recently been restored by Glasgow Building Preservation Trust. If you see rowers out on the water, 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 change.
