Having visted Glasgow in search of the mythical squinty bridge, I turned up at the Clyde Arc to find out it really wasn't that squinty! They should call it the 'at an angle bridge'. However, there was the added bonus of free music when we visited in July as a marching band was there playing music....

Coming home from Village hotel last night in pouring rain, visibility awful turning right out of the hotel. Found myself in a lane with an arrow pointing towards me, making me think I was in an oncoming traffic lane, so moved left which to me was a logical move. Continued through several green lights until I suddenly realised I was turning on to the Squinty bridge, but was in a Bus Lane, but it was too late to get out of it! Such a ridiculous idea to have a "dual carriageway" road but with one side dedicated to buses and taxis!! Have no idea whether traffic cameras are in force at night, but will have to wait for the possibility of an envelope arriving any day.

Near most major bridges there is a tourist map of the Bridges W@alk. if you have 1-2 hours, do it. It takes you over and around most of the major bridges and informs you of the historic changes to the River Clyde. You learn of the underwater tunnels, the ships, the living conditions and the immense skills of the workforce.

The bridge is quite iconic and the arc seemingly welcomes you to Glasgow. The are several interesting points of visit nearby, the armadillo building, BBC Scotland, science museum, the Quay and SECC. All of these are within walking distance from the bridge itself. I gave a higher mark because of location more than the bridge. Gatwick airport has a similar arc for their south terminal! So not really anything of significance.

I read that the Clyde Arc which is also known as Squinty Bridge is the first bridge to be built over the river Clyde in 35 years. It spans 169m across the river.

During the evening, when the lights are up, the surrounding area becomes a spectacular colorful scene. Great to take night photos. Unfortunately, my photography skill is not up to mark and I only manage to capture some shots that are not too clear.

The following buildings & centres are located around the river Cylde.

The Clyde Auditorium or "Armadillo" is located adjacent to the SECC ( Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre ), Glasgow Science Centre and also BBC Scotland

So so disappointed definitely won’t be going back I went there hoping to see this huge bridge thinking it would be perfect for a place to play hide and seek but to my dismay it was tiny and absolutely nowhere to hide my friends where in tears we had spent hours travelling to get there the journey back home was so quiet so disappointed

This is a beautiful bridge over the river Clyde.
It's crossable for both vehicles and pedestrians and it provides some lovely views of the architecture on its banks.

I am no architect or normally overly interested in structures like a new bridge, however I have been impressed by this bridge since it opened a few years back. Known locally as The Squinty Bridge - it was a much needed bridge to make a crossing where the old ferries plied their trade many years ago. Quick way to get from West End of Glasgow over towards areas in the south side of Glasgow and looks great at night when illuminated.
