From Townhead in the centre of Kirkintilloch turn into Southbank Road, then left into Southbank Drive. Pass the Police Station then right into Strathkelvin Place until you come to the Southbank Marina. Those travelling from the motorway, follow signs for Kirkintilloch, then for the Marina. (The Council Office next to us is also signposted.) 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.
Spaces are available in the car park on the street side of the buildings surrounding the marina.
The two boats can be booked separately or together from the first week in April until the second week in October. A sailing Westerly towards Bishopbriggs, lasts approximately two hours but can be shortened by arrangement at the time of booking. (It is possible to disembark at the Stables Restaurant on the return journey for a meal provided you arrange transport back from there as the boat cannot wait.)
