Funds generated by the Friends will support the maintenance of Glenlee and also help to fund volunteer projects on site, such as the restoration of the Kelvinhaugh Ferry, which was the last passenger ferry to be used in Glasgow by the Clyde Navigation Trust.

You will be making a real contribution towards enabling us to preserve the story of the Glenlee and the mighty river on which she was built for a new generation!


The Tall Ship at Riverside is owned by the Clyde Maritime Trust, a registered Scottish Charity. We depend on support from the public and other donors to fund the upkeep and restoration of our historic sailing vessel, S.V. Glenlee.

Any donation you can make will help greatly with this work.
