Getting There

Putin W4°18'47" N55°54'26"
Takeout W4°17'36" N55°52'11"

Putin at Garscube Bridge, where Maryhill Road (A81) crosses the Kelvin. Turn off the A81, and access the river near the entrance to Killermont Golf Club. Alternatively, you can putin at the Kelvindale Road bridge (just south of the canal bridge) which avoids Kelvindale weir. Takeout at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery at the southern end on Kelvingrove Park, or continue down to the Clyde.
