A NEW one-hour River Clyde boat tour which takes people past Glasgow sights from Braehead will launch tomorrow.

Passengers can board the vessel Tonka, at Braehead Shopping Centre's pontoon – behind Krispy Kreme – for a trip ‘up and doon the watter’ to Glasgow city centre and back.

Clyde Charters has just launched the tour on the river with several sailings every Monday.

And passengers will hear all about the sights they see on their boat trip with description written by Iain Quinn, who has been responsible for the commentary on the famous Waverley paddle steamer.

Peter Beagley, Braehead’s centre director, said: “Taking a river cruise from Braehead on the Tonka will give people a new and amazing perspective of the amazing sights and history of the riverside all the way to Glasgow.

“It can make for a fantastic day out for the family with free parking at the centre and lots of shops, cafes and restaurants only a short walk across our boardwalk from the pontoon.”

Ronnie Doolan, of Clyde Charters said: “You’ll get up closer than you could ever imagine to the best sights on the upper Clyde, like the TS Queen Mary, Glasgow’s famous King George V docks, Glasgow distillery, tall ship Glenlee and the River Kelvin with views to the University of Glasgow.

“We’ll also pass the Transport Museum, Crowne Plaza hotel, the BBC and STV buildings, new warships under construction at Govan, the Azamara cruise ships and even sail over the top of the Clyde tunnel!”

Ronnie added: “Iain Quinn who writes our commentary has a wealth of knowledge and his stories are guaranteed to raise a few eyebrows.”
