A lovely river.
Jul 2021
This is a lovely river with some nice-looking bridges built across it.
It's good for an afternoon stroll, as long as there are no heavy winds.

Great walk
Nov 2020 • Friends
The walk along the Clyde from the city centre past the TV studios of STV and BBC, with views of the Riverboat Casino, the Finnieston Crane, the Exhibition Centre, the Hydro and the Transport Museum is a great way to spend an hour or so. The river has a number of bridges across, some are quite funky in design, so you can easily cross from side to side. It’s easy to include a walk of the River Kelvin too before heading back into the city centre. Good walking paths, not too busy and great views. Well worth spending a few hours doing this.

The heart of Glasgow
Nov 2019
An amazing river that runs through the city of Glasgow. Very interesting quay. I dont recommend you go for a swim but there are some pretty bridges. Good for a nice walk. When I am in Glasgow always is very nice to go for stroll along riverbank. When I'm in Glasgow I always like to take a walk along the river. So, if you are in Glasgow, I highly recommend walking along the river Clyde.

Stroll around Kelvingrove patk
Oct 2020 • Couples
Walk from the Art Galleries & Museum (free entry but you have to book in advance during Covid restrictions). Cross Kelvin way and enter the park taking one of the varied routes through the park, heading away from the art galleries. During your walk you’ll see lots of wildlife and interesting architecture.
Cross back over the river as you near the end of the park and head across the road aiming for University Avenue. Walk up the avenue and as you reach the brow of the hill, enter the large gates of the university. Walk through the grounds and you’ll come to a point where there is a great vista over the city.
Take the road down to the right and at the bottom of the hill you’ll see a path to the left taking you to the main road. Turn left and you’ll soon be back at your starting point.

Very calming and peaceful
Sep 2020
The river Clyde is so beautiful, the water is calm and peaceful. I love seeing the clouds reflect off the water, its very relaxing and breathtaking. There are points of interest along the walkway, the Albert bridge, the portland suspension bridge and la pasionara, i only walked a little of the way, sat on some steps and had lunch but I'm sure there is far more to see and i will make a point of exploring more but its lovely to just sit and take a breathe and this is the place to do just that!

A river with different faces.
Jul 2020
As we were staying at the very good Village Hotel on the south side of the river, we had ample opportunity of exploring a bit of this modern, upmarket area of the riverside and enjoyed crossing the attractive Bells Bridge to view the likes of the Armadillo.

As pleasant as this area is however, my favourite part of the riverside in Glasgow is the area where the river runs through Glasgow Green. It was so peaceful and verdant and a wonderful place to relax while watching the rowers on the river and the abundant and diverse bird life.

Must do on a nice day
Apr 2019
One of my favourite things in Glasgow was walking along the Clyde and looking at the street art.

It does seem strange that the central city is not very connected to the river. You do not see riverside bars and cafes like you do in other cities.

It was nice walking along the river to the Peoples Palace and Winter Gardens. Buchanan Street was packed but the river walk was relatively empty,

A Modern Waterfront Walk
Jan 2020
A chance to amble, away from the hustle and bustle of the City Centre. Work still going on, to complete the access.

A great walk along the Clyde
Nov 2019
It was a gorgeous day last Friday, 29th November when I walked from the Tall Ship along the Clyde Walkway to almost Glasgow Green.

Cold, crisp and frosty with beautiful deep blue skies. Couldn't have timed it better !!
