A little pub history

The Stables was built to serve the watermen and horses using the Forth and Clyde Canal. When the canal was first built the boats that used it were pulled by horses, as a horse could go a few miles before needing a rest stables were built along the route. The stables would have an Inn on one side where the boatman and his passengers might rest and eat whilst on the other side there would have been equine accommodation with a hayloft above.

Make a day of it

Our grand looking pub has great views over Firth of Clyde, and was built in 1812 to rest the horses working on the nearby canal. Boat trips can be taken from the jetty, reached via a footpath.
