Maryhill nature discovery trail


Join us for the launch of our new Maryhill Nature Trail on Saturday 25th November. 

Discover the nature which thrives and survives around Maryhill's local waterways with our new trails. As a special event for the launch of this great new resource, we invite families to join us on a guided walk led by our heritage team, with hands on discovery activities throughout to explore and interpret the unique urban and natural landscape of Maryhill. 

11am - 12.30pm

The walks will start at 11am, last approx 1 hour and finish at Maryhill Burgh Halls with free refreshments available after the walk at the Burgh Halls. 

This is a free event.

Suitable for families with children aged 5 years+

To book visit:

Maryhill was a vast green space 250 years ago but when the Forth and Clyde Canal was buit 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. 

Please wear clothing suitable for mixed terrain and weather. 

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. 

A special thanks to Paths for All, Scottish Natural Heritage and the W M Mann Foundation for their grant support to develop these new walking trails!
