Forth & Clyde Canal Society

The Forth and Clyde Canal Society was formed in 1980 to campaign for the canal’s preservation, restoration and development. We had an important role in generating the enthusiasm and interest which led to it being reopened as a sea to sea waterway in 2001 and being reconnected to the Union Canal via the Falkirk Wheel in 2002. We are interested in all aspects of the canal’s maintenance, development and usage. We have a strong and enthusiastic presence in East Dunbartonshire.

Getting people on the water has always been one of our key objectives and we have three boats used for this purpose. They are normally based in Kirkintilloch but regularly visit other parts of the canal. The three boats are ‘Voyager’ capacity 55 passengers, ’Gipsy Princess’ capacity 36 passengers and ‘Janet Telford’ capacity 12 passengers. We use them as trip-boats, charter vessels and for members’ cruises. They are available for corporate and private functions as well as public trips. Further information is on our website.
