Glasgow’s canal offers a range of unique filming locations.

Whether you’re looking to hire a studio, capture an urban environment or an underwater scene in a controlled environment, venues along and around the Forth and Clyde canal offer a great location for a variety of filming and photography.

Perfect backdrop

Our amazing variety of venues range from vast indoor spaces, studios, historic buildings and skateparks to outdoor sites like Pinkston Watersports and unmistakable views across Glasgow’s west end.

We’ve welcomed the likes of Netflix blockbuster The Outlaw King, BBC’s Still Game and The Nest and comedy film Whisky Galore! to the canal to utilise this urban landscape’s unique backdrop.
