West Boathouse

Door open days

Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival

Come and learn about the sporting heritage of Glasgow's oldest rowing club. Hear about plans for the rejuvenation of the West Boathouse or get out on the Clyde and see the historic timber frame clubhouse from the river. Rower taster sessions are available on request for ages 12 and over.

Come and have a look around our historic building on the beautiful banks of the river Clyde in Glasgow Green.

Enjoy a cup of tea in the club room and watch the rowers mess about on the river.
The club has many historic images and photographs on display and out club members will be delighted to show you around and tell you all about being a rower in Glasgow.

This year, we plan to have lots of activities and information on offer as a taster for the 'Rejuvenation of the West Boathouse' project.� Come along, get involved and influence the development of this exciting heritage project.
