Just a short walk from Glasgow city centre, Glasgow’s Canal is home to some of the best culture, sports and urban nature in Scotland.

From grass-roots art studios and workspaces, to performing arts venues and national cultural organisations, the new and evolving cultural hub on the banks of the Forth and Clyde Canal in North Glasgow is bringing together some of the most creative minds in Scotland. Glasgow’s Canal is also home to a variety of cutting-edge sports activities, from Scotland’s first ever competition standard, purpose built watersports centre, to an innovative canalside fitness trail. More recently, Scotland’s first urban nature reserve has been opened up thanks to the creation of a new pathway through the heart of the Hamiltonhill Claypits.

Glasgow’s Canal is also the venue for the annual Glasgow Canal Festival.
