The Kelburn Boardwalk :: Shared Description

The 1Km long path runs along the south bank of the River Clyde, on north embankment of the A8 Greenock Road dual carriageway. The section of the road between the Newark and Woodhall roundabouts was built on mostly reclaimed land in the early 1980s and replaced the single and dual carriageway Glasgow Road as the main road through the east end of the town.

At the same time, the riverside path was created, consisting of alternating sections of raised boardwalk and lower level concrete path with ramps in between. I have no idea why the path is not entirely concrete or entirely boardwalk, perhaps it's related to drainage requirements.

The concrete sections flood at high and storm tides, entailing a scramble up the embankment to an informal path alongside the busy road, protected by a safety barrier.

The path provides a safe route for pedestrians and cyclists between Newark Castle Park in the west and Kelburn Part in the east. It provides many vantage points for bird watchers or ship spotters, with the occasional seal making an appearance too.
