Located just outside Loh Dalum Bay to the west, Monkey Bay is a deserted tranquil beach with good coral. Some daytrips stop here to see the monkeys, watch out – they can be very cheeky. This is a nice place to explore by kayak from Loh Dalum Beach.
There is a big, new double concrete road bridge for the Great Western Road. The historic Bard Avenue bascule bridge has a wee shop close by.

The long stretch of the Boghouse Locks, 33-36, give a last flight, with only three more locks to come before meeting the sea. (There is a footbridge at Lock 35. ) Much had to be rebuilt in this area to reopen the travel destination. Lock 36 had to be re-instated, hence the odd kink in the western approach to it.
Duntreath Avenue Bridge is another big concrete structure connecting Yoker and Drumchapel, where we begin to be aware of the Kilpatrick Hills. The bridge was culverted before the millennium restoration. In Victorian times this was pleasant countryside, Drumchapel a holiday destination.
After the Linvale bascule bridge there are long straights leading to the Clyde Shopping Park.
