Discover the nature which thrives and survives around Maryhill's local waterways with our new trails.
Suitable for families and community groups with children aged 6 years+.
Maryhill was a vast green space 250 years ago but when the Forth and Clyde Canal was built approx 230 years ago, the area very quickly became an industrial town. Animals and plants have had to adapt to survive and they now use the Canal and River Klevin to find food and shelter. Join us in the launch of our new trails to explore nature at work in the heart of Maryhill and record your findings along the way using the trail leaflet.
The trail can be used as a stand alone resource for free by printing the PDF below.
If you are taking part as a group, why not book onto our guided Maryhill Nature Trail to delve further into Maryhill's dynamic heritage? Our heritage team will guide you through the walk with discovery activities along the way for all ages and abilities to enjoy. Groups can book between 10-30 participants for a guided walk for a fee of £35.00. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0141 948 0701 for more information.
Accessibility on the walk:
The walk is approximately 1.4 miles/2.2km. It is a low level walk along the iconic sites of the Forth and Clyde Canal and River Kelvin. Mostly wide, smooth and flat. One short steep stretch going down to the Kelvin Walk Way from the canal towpath with railings on one side for support.
