We have multiple measures in place to protect our customers, boaters, the public and staff, and encourage you to take the necessary steps to look after yourself and others as restrictions ease.

Be Safe.  Please follow all health and safety notices and government advice during your visit. This includes keeping 2m apart from others, washing your hands, not touching shared surfaces and following the Scottish Government’s Test and Protect approach if you show Covid-19 symptoms.

Be Smart. Take sensible steps to avoid breaking the guidelines, for example if an area of the towpath ahead looks busy, step out of the path to let others pass. If this is not possible, please consider turning back or finding an alternative route.

Be Kind. Be mindful of other users and our staff. Please be patient; you may need to wait and it may take you slightly longer to get where you want to go.
