Join our tour guides on a trail of discovery along the paths, canal and river walkways through Maryhill. Discover the buildings that tell Maryhills story from grand estate grounds to buzzing industrial police burgh to modern life.
The area we now know as Maryhill once belonged to the heiress of Gairbraid. Once an area surrounded by fields and greenery, the building of the Forth and Clyde Canal brought industry to the area and changed the landscape completely within 50 years. The heritage trail journeys through Maryhills history, highlighting points where Maryhills landscape was changed forever such as the Kelvin aqueduct, the Kelvindock locks, starting at the grand Victorian Maryhill Burgh Halls. This trail uncovers the remains of the vibrant and dynamic history of Maryhill.
Discover Glasgows Industrial Heritage: Maryhills development is unique in that its population thrived under several industries introduced to the area, rather than just the one. Discover the impact the building of the Forth and Clyde canal had on the area and what happened after.
