  • Port Dundas

    In recent years the Glasgow Canal Regeneration Partnership has spent millions of pounds of investment in canal extensions into Port Dundas and various environmental improvements in and around the canal.

  • Speirs Locks

    Significant momentum has been achieved by ISIS, Glasgow City Council (GCC) & Scottish Canals over the last few years in the Speirs Locks area and in turn this is filtering through to Applecross and Port Dundas.

  • Applecross

    Scottish Canals ownership at Applecross Basin on the Forth & Clyde Canal extends to over 35 acres of land with huge potential for site by site regeneration in partnership with ISIS, a joint venture between Scottish Canals, Muse Developments and Igloo (the regeneration fund of Aviva).

  • Firhill

    We propose to create a new water based community in the canal basin at Firhill of up to 18 houseboats in a horseshoe arrangement. This is a fantastic site which is currently under-utilised and the proposals will greatly enhance the immediate area and contribute to a sense of community and place whilst enhancing the Canal setting.

  • New Mooring Strategy

    Glasgows canals have evolved from a linked network of industrial site into an incredibly important social and leisure resourse for the City. This evolution requires a new look at how we use our waterways and bring the life and activity which will secure the waterways for future generations.
