The Tall Ship

[The "Glenlee" a.k.a. The Tall Ship]

The three masts of the Glenlee stand tall in the midst of Glasgow's old docklands where the River Kelvin meets the Clyde. The last Clyde-built ship still afloat in the UK, this has been the boat's resting place since 2011 after a lifetime spanning three different centuries and six continents. Restored in the 1990s, all levels of the ship are explorable: only by going below decks do you begin to appreciate the capacity of the boat beyond the scale of its masts. And next door is the award-winning Riverside Museum; combine both for a full afternoon with plenty of interest for all ages.
