By Public Transport
The quickest way from the City Centre is by the Underground to Cowcaddens.
Coming out through the turnstiles, leave by the exit ahead of you and head to your right, so that you’re walking towards the motorway flyover with flats on your right and Garscube Road on your left.

You will shortly come to a double underpass with red pavement underfoot and some large sculptures of flowers on your left. Continue through this and, just as you come out of the other side, you will see a set of granite steps. Go up these and continue uphill until you see another set of stairs on your left.

Climb the stairs (or use the alternative ramp) and you will arrive at locks on the Forth and Clyde canal. Cross the canal at these locks and turn left, through an open set of gates, and continue alongside the large mill building to its far end.

The Baptist Union of Scotland office is at 48 Speirs Wharf – right on the corner.

Car Parking at Speirs Wharf

There is parking available at Speirs Wharf, however, parking is limited and the car park is often full.
Should you not find a parking space at Speirs Wharf, alternative parking may be available within parking bays on both Borron Street and High Craighall Road – see map below for details.
We would advise you to leave a little extra time for parking before your meeting at Speirs Wharf.
