Discover Bowling Harbour

Discover the area around Bowling Harbour.

Bowling Harbour not only has a peaceful little beach, it also has it’s own woodland which provides a wonderful little spot for school groups, education and fun family day visits and lots of great picnic spots.


The BHive Activity Hub is located at the foot of Kilpatrick Hills which offer stunning views of Bowling Harbour, the River Clyde and beyond.

The Old Kilpatrick, Bowling and Milton Heritage Trail takes in the villages of Old Kilpatrick, Bowling and Milton, stretching approximately three miles along the north bank of the River Clyde, westwards from the Erskine Bridge.

The Saltings Local Nature Reserve is located near the Erskine Bridge and is bounded by the River Clyde and the Forth and Clyde Canal.  The views down the River Clyde are stunning and Dumbarton Rock can be seen in the distance. It’s an area around 19 hectares made up of regenerated woodland and meadow and is noted for its wetland habitats.

From Old Kilpatrick on the west coast to near Bo’ness in the east, the historic Antonine Wall stretches across the country. Follow the 37 mile route and explore the traces of roman ramparts, steep ditches, and the remains of forts and bathhouses.
