What are we? We are a charity which provides canal trips for people with special needs on our specially equipped boats.
Who are we? We are volunteers who give up our time to run and maintain the boats. All our members are volunteers who receive the training necessary to run the boats safely. We have no paid members; everyone gives their time freely either on the boat as crew or steward, or by helping maintain the boats.
How are we funded? The money needed to run our boats and maintain them is raised from donations and the sale of souvenirs.
Where do you find us? Our boats sail out of Southbank Marina, Southbank Road, Kirkintilloch, G66 1XU, from April to the middle of October.
The Kirkintilloch branch of the Seagull Trust was opened in 1983. A boathouse was built near the Townhead Bridge on the Town’s main street with room for two boats and dry docking facilities for winter refits. Development of Kirkintilloch Town center area saw the need for the land on which our boathouse was built and so in 2009 we moved to a new custom built boathouse. This was on the site of the old slipway of J & J Hay & Son the famous Kirkintilloch Boat Yard, which is now part of the Southbank Marina Complex. This gave us state of the art maintenance and berthing for our boats along with office facilities. Loading of passengers takes place at specially reserved berths within the marina.
