Anchors aweigh at Clydebank
The idyllic town of Clydebank was transformed into a shipbuilding haven in the 19th century, and has been rightly proud of its heritage ever since. Bordering Dumbarton and Milrigave on the River Clyde, it's still the heartland of all things nautical - just as it was in its heyday. If you want to learn more about the area's fascinating history, the Clydebank Museum and Art Gallery is the place to go. With interactive exhibitions and contemporary artwork, there's enough to keep everyone interested.
Shop 'til you drop in Clyde
Clyde Shopping Centre originally opened in the town's old Singer factory. Now, it's the go-to place for all things high street. With over 120 shops to choose from, as well as an on-site cinema, you're spoilt for choice here. Not only that, Clyde Shopping Centre also has plenty of restaurants with choices to tickle everyone's tastebuds. The centre leads out to a bridge over the Forth and Clyde canal, where you can enjoy a romantic after-dinner stroll.
Reach new heights on the Titan Crane
This century-old crane was built in 1907 over the River Clyde, and it's still in great condition today. Overlooking Glasgow and towering over Clydebank town, it's a fabulous sight when illuminated at night. The best bit? You can organise a bungee jump from the top of the crane from May through to October every year. Planning a trip to Clydebank?
