The B-listed West Boathouse is the well-used and much loved home of Glasgow’s oldest rowing club. Come and see this unique timber frame building, still in active use and filled with historic images of rowing on the Clyde.

Explore this historic building on the beautiful banks of the Clyde in Glasgow Green, enjoy a cup of tea in the club room and watch the rowers on the river.

The club will have historic images and photographs on display and information about the current oral history project that the two clubs of the West Boathouse, Clydesdale Amateur Rowing Club and Clyde Amateur Rowing Club, have been working on with Scotland's Urban Past.
