Glasgow Bridges

Glasgow Bridge Walk

Glasgow Bridge Walk

Glasgow has a lot of bridges, as in 21 bridges in a walk that takes approximately 2.5 hours to complete. Over the weekend, a friend and I undertook the challenge. Before coming to the first bridge (Millenium Bridge), beside the Science Centre, we noticed my favourite boat The Waverley was getting ready for her voyage of the day.

Being a paddle steamer she obviously cannot paddle backwards, so to turn to face down the Clyde she required the help of a tug boat to be turned around. It made for a funny sight.

We then crossed the first bridge and looking up the Clyde you can see various bridges in the distance.

Looking down, you can see the Waverley paddling away, with the flats I stay at in the far background.

The walk itself takes in 21 bridges, but be warned some of the bridges are not for pedestrians!

My personal favourite bridge, loser confession, the squinty bridge, as you can see it doesn’t go straight over the Clyde!

Some of the later bridges are definitely not intended for tall pedestrians.

I’m 5ft 4 and I felt like ducking!

Another non-foot bridge, connecting Glasgow with the rest of the UK.

We got to bridge 11 and ended up just wandering through Glasgow Green. A lovely walk along The Clyde. I will finish it one day.
