As you may have gathered by the name of our farm, boats are rather central to it all! Farm owner Iain Withers lived on a narrowboat on the canal for many years, and many of the people involved in the project do too.
Narrowboat Farm is the very first home of community-owned canal boat moorings in Scotland and as such is a ‘pilot site’ for the project. Launched in May 2022, after over 6 years of negotiations with Scottish Canals, Narrowboat Farm aims to prove that interesting moorings bring vibrancy to the canals!
