Once a thriving shipbuilding area, the Clyde sank into dereliction during the post-war era but has been subject to extensive rejuvenation. There are noteworthy sights along the river, though the walk along its banks still isn't all that it could be.
Beyond it, the Southside is a busy web of roads dotted with sizeable parks. It's an intriguingly multicultural part of Glasgow, with temples and mosques alongside sturdy episcopal churches. It's got an up-and-coming food scene and thriving cultural centres. Several excellent attractions are also dotted across the area.
