We train on Strathclyde Loch, the 2km, 8 lane, purpose built course which is used for Scotland’s two main multi lane regattas – Strathclyde Park Regatta in April and the Scottish Championships in June. The course was built for the Commonwealth Games in 1986 and has seen many national and international competitions since then.

The Club own many different boast including 13 Single Sculls, 6 Doubles, 5 Quads and an Eight.  We have our own coaching launch and can also book other coaching boats if required.

The Scottish Rowing Centre is home to Scotland’s only indoor Rowing Tank and the club’s 11  rowing machines (ergometers) sit alongside.  The club frequently  hires use of the indoor rowing tank which allows members to work on technique when weather permits access to the Loch. The indoor tank also allows  new members and beginners to learn technique and gain a more realistic idea of rowing technique without actually being on the water.
