Down the Kelvin, Up the Clyde

A surprisingly quiet wander along stretches of Glasgow’s rivers shared mostly with joggers and cyclists, but where was everyone else on such a nice night?

From Kelvinbridge up to the Botanics then back down all the way to the confluence with the River Clyde at the Riverside Museum. At times you wouldn’t even know you were in a city as the river sits so low relative to its surroundings and is largely bound by dense woodland on either side.

At the Clyde, things changed completely, lower surroundings and a significantly wider, slower body of water. Whilst the Kelvin had been steadily flowing, the Clyde was barely moving at all. Great views downstream to a developing sunset and upstream to the city centre and all its bridges with a full moon rising above.
