Doon the Watter

Doon the Watter - NEW

Sailing 'doon the watter' has a long history in Glasgow, dating back to when the town's workers would escape by Clyde steamer from the factories and shipyards for either a day trip full of fresh air and beautiful scenery, or would head off for their holidays to Clyde resorts such as Rothesay and Dunoon.

Today, visitors to Scotland and Glasgow are rediscovering the delights of cruising on the Clyde. Enjoy this 2 hour 45 minute voyage of discovery along Scotland's River Clyde from Glasgow's city centre, sailing past the world famous Titan Crane - Scotland's unusual engineering landmark, which was at one time used to fit out liners and battle ships at the ship yards on the Clyde, and now the same engineering landmark status as the Eiffel tower and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

From there, you'll cruise down to the historical Dumbarton Rock - this fortress has a long and proud history of guarding the Clyde.

For lovers of
Clyde views, rural and industrial scenery.
