The Clyde river is Scotland’s most important river and flows through Glasgow, a historically important shipbuilding site. The Clyde was a major part of the trade route towards the Americas during both the building up of the British empire and the Industrial Revolution. Two shipbuilding companies still operate on the Clyde.

The Clyde originates in the Lowther Hill and the mouth is at the aptly named Firth of Clyde.
