Walk a few yards, and you can fish the Forth and Clyde canal for your supper. Fish aren't biting? - try a long and testing cycle ride up the Kilsyth hills    

Or an easy one along the canal.

Or if that all sounds like too much excitement, check out the canoeing on the canal just a few yards away. Or go for a hike along the Antonine way... Otherwise try the following clubs and venues:
