Glasgow Canal Walk
This waterside walk takes you along the Forth and Clyde Canal from the centre of Glasgow to Clydebank. The walk runs for about 9 miles along a flat path, passing a number of locks and the Kelvin Aqueduct. At the end of the walk you can catch the train back to Glasgow.
The walk starts from the canal basin at Port Dundas and follows the canal north west, passing Firhill Park and Ruchill Park. At Maryhill you turn west towards Netherton, passing the Kelvin Aqueduct on the way. The navigable aqueduct carries the Forth and Clyde Canal over the River Kelvin.
You continue through Blairdardie, Old Drumchapel and Linnvale before coming to Clydebank. In the town you can enjoy views of the River Clyde and visit the Clyde Shopping Centre which incorporates a bridge over the Forth and Clyde Canal.
To extend the walk you can continue to Bowling where the canal terminates. Heading east from Glasgow will take you to Falkirk at the other end of the canal.
Also of interest is the popular Kelvin Walkway which follows the River Kelvin from Milngavie to the Glasgow Heliport on the River Clyde. You can pick up the trail at the Kelvin Aqueduct on the canal.
