Glasgow and the Clyde at dusk from the air
Glasgow and the Clyde at dusk from the air
The reflection is on the Science Centre building NS5665 : Glasgow Science Centre at Pacific Quay.

The entire length of the navigable Clyde from Glasgow Green (lower left corner) to the open firth at Port Glasgow can be seen here. Navigation is possible above Glasgow Green, but is blocked by the Tidal Weir NS5964 : The Tidal Weir.

The river is not naturally navigable, having been much altered since the late 18th Century, until which time the 19 miles distant Port Glasgow was the site of the city's docks and harbours. Further reading is available in this geograph article Link .
