Stage One

Science Centre

The Walkway starts beside the A814 Clydeside Expressway near Partick railway station, and this first stage is easy to follow for its entire length by simply always staying on the path closest to the river. Cross the Expressway at the pedestrian bridge, pass the Tall Ship and the heliport before reaching the Clyde near the SECC and the Clyde Auditorium, aka the Armadillo. These, and the Glasgow Science Centre on the opposite bank, as well as hotels, office, and residential accomodation are indicative of the continuing redevelopment of the former docks. The Walkway continues past the Finniestion Crane, one of Glasgow's tallest landmarks, under the Kingston Bridge, on to the Broomielaw and Glasgow Green . From here the route passes Polmadie and Dalmarnock and on to Cambuslang giving little indication now of the heavy industry once concentrated in the area. Cross the river at Cambuslang Bridge and follow the path along the south bank to Clydeford Bridge and the A763, and take this road into the town centre for trains and buses.
