Geo-Trips :: Along the Clyde in central Glasgow

Central Glasgow

A walk from Premier Inn Glasgow City Centre South, Tue, 25 Jun 2019 by Rudi Winter

Having arrived too late to join the organised canal walk the day before the Geograph AGM in Glasgow, I had a short stroll across and along the River Clyde near my hotel in the Gorbals, past the Central Mosque and onto the Suspension Bridge. Amongst the bridges is the Caledonian Railway Bridge, where tracks begin to fan out towards Glasgow Central station, which I visited briefly. After that, I had to find my way to the Babbity Bowster pub, where the Geo-meet continued - no photos from this part of the walk.

On the map below, the grey line is the GPS track from this trip. Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
