Clyde Cruises – A trip ‘Doon the Watter’

No visit to Glasgow would be complete without a trip ‘doon the watter’ (‘down the water’ in the Glasgow dialect) to see the shipyards still in action, the Tall Ship, the famous Titan Crane at Clydebank and down to Dumbarton Castle, built on a volcanic plug, where William Wallace was imprisoned, perhaps before he was taken to London to be tortured and murdered. 

You can take a ‘Doon The Watter’ cruise or, if you fancy something a bit more special, the ‘Prosecco Afternoon Tea‘ cruise. Both cruises leave from the pontoon to the left of the Riverside Museum.

The cruises don’t run every day and you have to book in advance, so please make sure you check out all the options on the Clyde Cruises website.
