Just eight miles northeast of Glasgow sits the town of Kirkintilloch, a community of about 20,000 in the county of Dunbartonshire.
The Forth and Clyde Canal is a waterway close to Kirkintilloch. After opening in 1790, the canal made it possible for sea boats to travel between the Firth of Forth and the Firth of Clyde. Residents of Kirkintilloch are proud of this unique feat of engineering that stands as testament to the ingenuity of the region’s residents.
Drumpellier Country Park gives the locals of Dunbartonshire a place to unwind with more than 500 acres of moorland, woods and grassland to explore. With lochs, trails and playgrounds, this is a popular family day out and in the summer, watersports are a particularly big draw.
Throughout the area, from Lenzie to Birdston, Floom’s Kirkintilloch flower delivery covers every part of town.
