Hi guys, early next year i will be taking the move to Helensburgh from Lincoln. Is there any carp fishing locations nearby or is it a bit of a trek? I have been carp fishing for about 10 years now and would love to continue this great sport. Any info would be great guys :)

Welcome Smithy!

I am a bit familiar with Helensburgh, I am not aware of any specific carp waters around there, though there are a couple of small "Ponds" just outside town at the uphill end - leave town on Sinclair Roard, about half a mile on the left are a couple of small lochs, should obtain permission first but may be water authority resevoirs so might not be able to fish, or no permission necessary check them out.

Otherwise check the waters listed on SCG site, but you'll be in the west of Scotland, quite close to Loch Lomond, one of the best Pike waters available..
