Situated in the heart of Scotland's Central Belt, the Kelvin Valley has plenty to offer everyone. Walkers and cyclists are well catered for with the gentle countryside paths and canal walkways, as well as the more taxing Kilsyth Hills and Campsie Fells, with their splendid views.

Hi, the site has been refurbished following a change of hosting. The information and text is generally OK and most links but we'll try and add/update as time permits. Thankd for being patient.

Swans enjoys the canalThe famous Forth and Clyde Canal which runs parallel to the River Kelvin, supports canoeing and canal boats for the water enthusiast. Auchinstarry Quarry is a mecca for rock climbers, while the canal and Banton Loch continue to attract the fishing fraternity.

Golf is on offer at the Kilsyth-Lennox, Westerwood and
Dullatur golf courses, to name but a few.

Bird watching, orienteering, nature pursuits and pony trekking are also popular in the area.

History buffs will be delighted to discover Scotland's Roman frontier, the
Antonine Wall, running along the top of the southern slopes of the valley, as well as a wealth of Covenanting history which centres around the Colzium site of the battle of Kilsyth. The area is also well known for Revival history.

For those wanting a change from the busy leisure pursuits,
Kilsyth with its Main Street combines 'traditional shops' and newer establishments with places to eat and relax in a safe pedestrianised environment. Don't miss the ornamental bridges over the burns or the nearby Burngreen.

The Kelvin Valley is well situated within easy reach of Scotland's two major cities, Glasgow and Edinburgh, as well as being only a short drive away from the Trossachs and Loch Lomond. Its position makes it an ideal touring base for those wanting to visit those places and beyond.
