The Glasgow Canal is in north Glasgow, just 10 minutes from the city centre, and stretches from Port Dundas to Speirs Wharf, Firhill and beyond.


The Glasgow Canal Co-op is a collective of organisations on the bank of Glasgow’s Forth & Clyde Canal in the north of the city, aiming to unlock the canal’s potential to create a vibrant area for people to live, work and visit. It’s a close-knit neighbourhood that’s owned and run by the community, for the community.

Members include Pinkston Watersports, Scottish Opera, Hamiltonhill Claypits, The National Theatre of Scotland, Scottish Canals, Glasgow Sculpture Studios, Friends of Possilpark Green Space, Agile City, The Whisky Bond, Queens Cross Housing Association, The Glue Factory, Everyday Athlete, Igloo, Glasgow Tool Library and Glasgow City Council. 


Glasgow Canal is an emerging destination and home to leading cultural organisations, cutting-edge sports activities, Scotland’s first urban nature reserve and Glasgow Canal Festival.


The area has unique assets of heritage, environment, arts and sports, which paired with the thriving organisations and brilliant people based along the canal, make it an area with much to celebrate.
