Take a walk around the Forth & Clyde Canal and unlock the story of Maryhill's canal.
The walk starts at Maryhill Burgh Halls where you will find out more about their famous stained glass windows. Wander down to the Kelvin to see the visible remains of the papermill and onto the aqueduct which carries the canal across the river. This was designed by Robert Whitworth and when it opened in 1790 it caused quite a stir with people travelling from all over to see it! Heading up the canal locks you'll learn about the role the canal played in the Second World War before returning to the Burgh Hall.
Please note the walk includes stairs.
