Bowling – Forth Clyde Canal

The Bowling Basin sees quite a lot of activity in the summer months with yachts and motor boats either typing up in the safe harbour or traversing the country from Edinburgh to sail out into the Clyde and further – the Hebridean Islands, maybe!

It’s quite possible to walk along the banks of the Canal, underneath the Erskine Bridge to Clydebank town centre and further.  There is car parking at the Bowling Basin but, if you’re in the designated car park, it gets locked overnight so it’s a good idea to check with the lock-keeper in case you’ve got to leave the car till the morning.
