Welcome to the Forth & Clyde Canal Society Website
The Forth and Clyde Canal Society was formed by a group of canal enthusiasts who felt that the decline in the canals of Scotland in the 1960s had to be reversed. They believed these monuments to our industrial past could be put to use in the future for the benefit of local communities and they could see that this decline in the canals needed to be highlighted to local and national authorities.
After the completion of their main goal, to have the canals fully re- instated for public use, they continue to support, promote and use the Forth and Clyde Canal in various ways. You can join them in this support by using one of their boats for a charter, by enjoying one of their historical presentations or by joining the Forth and Clyde Canal Society.
Formed in 1980 the Forth and Clyde Canal Society lobbied for the canals to be brought into public use and promoted thereafter.
The Forth and Clyde Canal Society has four boats which are used throughout most of the year.
Our four boats are available for charter for all types of occasion and can be used for commercial presentations.
