River Leven and River Clyde from the air
River Leven and River Clyde from the air
The River Leven meanders the short distance from Loch Lomond and enters the Clyde here at Dumbarton Rock.

Taken from a Glasgow-bound Boeing 747, this photo shows Dumbarton Rock, the Dumbarton bridges and Levengrove park. The westernmost junction of the M8 Motorway at Westferry can be seen to the top right.

The tide is low and the "Lang Dyke" and the navigable channel in the Clyde are clearly visible. See the Lang Dyke in close-up here NS4273 : The Lang Dyke.

The Lang Dyke :: NS4373
This is a training wall, built in order to deepen the channel of the River Clyde for shipping. Construction began in 1773, although there would be later additions to the dyke. See NS4273 : The Lang Dyke for a much more detailed account.
