Starting from Partick station, heading down towards the river, 12 walkers rounded the Riverside museum for a view up river of some of the bridges we were about to cross. The walk continued along the north of the river, passing the SECC and Hydro, before we crossed the Millenium Bridge and stopped for morning coffee at the Science Museum. Now on the south side of the river, we headed to Bell’s bridge, but stayed on the south side till we reached the squinty bridge which we crossed. (Squinty because the point on the south side diectly across from Finnieston Street was not suitable for supporting the bridge). Back on the north side, we continued along the riverside path, under the Kingston bidge, till we came back over the Tradeston Bridge. (This bridge is “S” shaped to lengthen so it is not too steep an incline) Continuing, along the river, we passed under the King George V and Glasgow bridges before crossing on the South Portland Suspension Bridge. The next step of the walk took us along Carlton Place, passed the Sheriff court and the Gorbals Street Bridge and onto the Albert bridge at the Nautical college (now Riverside Campus of City of Glasgow College). We walked back to the North side from where we made our way home.
