From Townhead in the centre of Kirkintilloch turn into Southbank Road and follow it until you come to the newly constructed Southbank Marina. Located inside the marina buildings is a lounge area with toilet facilities which are available for passengers to wait in comfort before or after their cruise. The boats leave from the pontoon on the right of the marina as shown in the adjacent picture.
Having successfully established cruising from Ratho, the Trustees looked westward and in the early 1980’s chose Kirkintilloch, on the wide Forth & Clyde Canal, for the second branch. The Campsie Fells, are readily accessible from Kirkintilloch and the combination of a trip on the “Yarrow Seagull” or the “Marjorie Seagull” with a picnic in the hills is very popular. This area of East Dunbartonshire is rich in Roman History and more can be found out at the following, to which admission is free: The Auld Kirk Museum and The Reference Department of the William Patrick Library both at Kirkintilloch Cross and The Lillie Art Gallery, Station Road, Milngavie.
