New team at Boathouse

Ryan Barrie and Aisling Friel

NEW life has been breathed into a canal-side restaurant north of Glasgow four months after it went into administration.

The Boathouse at Auchinstarry Marina in Kilsyth has been revamped and relaunched by a team led by restaurateur Ryan Barrie, who has previously operated Glasgow venues including The Spiritualist, and his wife, Aisling Friel.

Barrie and Friel, who have acquired the leasehold, said the new-look venue aims to bring a “city centre dining experience” to Kilsyth.
