I dunno why but I have always wanted to walk over this bridge and i was already in Cessnock already I thought why not. It is a nice looking when it is lit up at night and is one of the many bridges in Glasgow, also it is not far from the SECC and The Hydro. There is not really... More

This elegant arch across the river is not exactly a tourist attraction but it is a fine bridge providing another way of crossing the river, taking you from the south side to the west end or vice versa.

This piece of architecture and design is very striking by day but comes into it's own at night. The Squinty bridge, as it is affectionately known , is a great subject for photographs . It sits very well in the surroundings and is a very welcome addition to the bridges over the Clyde both in form and function. Best viewed... More

An interesting bridge and interesting design. May I recommend a walk along the Clyde crossing each bridge in turn - all so different and all interesting in their own way. Go left right at every bridge -on a nice day - good fun - get the kids to draw each different shape

My daughter and I passed the squinty bridge, on the hop on hop off tour bus of Glasgow. It is very impressive and the next time we are visiting Glasgow, we would like to see it at night, when it is all lit up.

Opened just a decade ago, this is the second bridge to be build crossing the iver at Glasgow city centre. Interesting for its arched design that is beautifully lit at night and is quite a sight by day. It's also interesting that it crosses the river at an angle. Clearly popular with joggers.

This is the latest edition to Glasgows trafic barring bridges. When it opened there was 2 lanes each direction. Now they have made one side for buses and cyclists only. This makes trafic on the bridge ridiculous at pike times while the bus lanes are empty. They should consider opening all lanes at pike times. Plus allowing taxis cars to... More

My wife and myself walked from St Enoch's down to the Clyde and turned right towards Finneston, where I grew up in the 1950's. Always love the big crane as it embedded in my memory from when I was about 4-5 yrs old. What the council has done to the Clydeside promenade is just incredible, the armadill is right there... More
