We are very sorry, but due to works on the canals we are unable to take bookings until April 2020.

Navvies' Barge

Join us for a boat trip down the Forth and Clyde

Relax and escape for a few hours down the almost forgotten waterway. The canals are teeming with life and beauty, sit and watch the world slowly trickle by onboard our homely narrowboat.

For the duration of the journey you will be given the run of the inside of the boat while we skipper out back, and you will be invited to try your hand at steering the boat, a fantastic way to relax and find yourself truly living in the moment.

Short Trip

Our short trip takes roughly two to two and a half hours and consists of a trip to the Maryhill Locks. This trip takes a secret route meandering through the city of Glasgow taking in beautiful views of the West End.

Upon arriving at Maryhill Locks there is a fantastic little cafe selling tapas food, the Velovan Bike Cafe.

Turning the boat

The Mary Hill Locks are a flight of 5 locks leading the way to Bowling and onto the River Clyde. Unfortunately, we are unable to go through these locks at this time. At the top of the Locks customers are given the opportunity to assist in turning the boat around using ropes and the power of the wind rather than the engine before beginning our return journey to the home mooring.

Long Trip

The long boat trip takes us to Kirkintilloch, the so called Canal Capital of Scotland. This trip shares the first half hour of the short trip, but then takes a turning in the direction of the River Forth before arriving at the Maryhill Locks.

This is a full day out on the boat and takes roughly two and a half hours to reach Kirkintilloch. The majority of our trips call in for lunch at The Stables Pub. If you are joining us with children there is a fantastic barge here called Craft Daft on a Raft offering great activities for children. Alternatively, Cadder Wharf is a beautiful spot along the canal for a picnic.

A bird on the canal

We will bring a homemade cake for the long trips which last roughly seven and a half hours and costs £250. If you are interested in booking a boat trip please do get in touch, we will do all we can to ensure the day meets your wishes, from adjusting the length of the trip to decorating the boat.
