Ok so I gave all the categorys a 5 out of 5 but gave the overall a 1. Why I hear you ask? Well let me tell you. This to me is a monument of just how under appreciated Glasgow and Clydebank really are. This lonely relic in rundown scrub land in the middle of nowhere is one of the... More

As and engineer I was quite excited to be visiting one of the 'titan' cranes and picked a good day for the visit. The ticket office is about 1/2 a mile form the crane and a regular minibus shuttle (every 15 minutes) takes you to the crane itself. On board the mini bus a a recorded introduction to the crane...

What a great visit to learn about the heritage of shipbuilding on the Clyde. The is the last rem ant of a once massive industry and its restoration and now public access makes it a must see attraction. The views are fantastic and not sure if all the bungee jumpers appreciate the view as they plunge head first off the... More

Great way to see the huge impact Scottish shipbuilding had on the World. The view from the top of the crane was brilliant and everything is very well done and laid out, from buying your ticket, the minibus and the the staff were all so interesting and accommodating.

My son and I visited the Titan Crane on 30.08.2014 slightly overcast and breezy. No problem finding the office where we were taken by minibus to the Titan listening to a pre-recorded brief. Nice, clean grounds and the choice of taking the bus back or walking. We were met off the bus and given a talk about the history of... More

The Titan Crane is located on the banks of the River Clyde on the site of what was John Brown's shipyard, where the famous "Queens" were built and is now the home of Clydebank College. There is a Visitor Centre where there you can watch a short video, see plans, photos and models and get a coffee and a snack.... More

Decided to do this on the way back from the Commonwealth Games. It was just a shame we chose such a dull day as the view from the top of the crane on a clear day must be brilliant. Not the easiest place to find as it's quite well signposted on the way out of Glasgow but the signs are... More
