Anyone wanting to take part is given a rubber ring to test out on Scotland's only artificial whitewater course for a ride they won't forget.

Hannah Blair, Pinkston Watersports Centre general manager and Glasgow Canal Co-op co-director, said: “We’re so excited to have launched whitewater tubing at Pinkston. This is an adrenaline-filled activity that lets people get up close with our controlled rapids.

“We’ve had a great reaction from people who have had a lot of fun taking part so far, including comedians Gary Faulds and Gary Meikle who gave us all a laugh. We’re based at Port Dundas just minutes from the city centre so people looking for a thrilling outdoor experience don’t have far to come.”
