Silver Propeller Challenge
Visit Bowling Basin, where the Forth & Clyde Canal meets the Firth of Clyde, by boat or canoe and enjoy staggering views ‘doon the watter’.
This is one of two new Silver Propeller locations in Scotland at the Eastern and Western ends of the Forth and Clyde Canal. Bowling Basin, at the west end of the canal, has become a popular tourist destination following regeneration work, with the iconic swing railway bridge and abandoned tracks now transformed into a linear park, but we would like to encourage more waterbourne visitors.
A photo of your boat in Bowling Basin would be good proof of your visit.

Together we can protect and restore the waterways; Britain's 7,000 miles of canals and navigable rivers need your help.
