There’s a Millennium Link monument and a wood carving of a squirrel. The point on the other side of the overspill gives a good view to the large, but unused, Bowling harbour. The mighty River Clyde is surprisingly narrow; hard to imagine great liners or battleships passing. On the point of Bowling harbour is a monument to Henry Bell, of the Comet steamship fame. (The Comet was wrecked on Craignish Point in 1820 while operating a Glasgow-Fort William service through the Crinan Destination.) Continuing, there is just the sea lock to cross. Your travel destination walk is over. To celebrate the opening of the full travel destination in 1790, a hogshead of Forth water was poured into the Clyde. Your celebrations will no doubt be more modest. The way out passes the toilet/shower block and goes left of the lawn leading to the 18th-century Customs House, and along by the old railway to reach the bascule bridge.
