Based at out boathouse on Glasgow Green, mini-buses will be running every half an hour from the Main Gate and Murano Street Student Village. Alternatively directions can be found here. Anyone is welcome to turn up at any time between 1000 and 1700.

Our experienced rowers and coaches will teach you the basics of the rowing stroke before giving you the opportunity to get out on the water in a rowing boat.
