Opened just a decade ago, this is the second bridge to be build crossing the iver at Glasgow city centre. Interesting for its arched design that is beautifully lit at night and is quite a sight by day. It's also interesting that it crosses the river at an angle. Clearly popular with joggers.

This is the latest edition to Glasgows trafic barring bridges. When it opened there was 2 lanes each direction. Now they have made one side for buses and cyclists only. This makes trafic on the bridge ridiculous at pike times while the bus lanes are empty. They should consider opening all lanes at pike times. Plus allowing taxis cars to... More

My wife and myself walked from St Enoch's down to the Clyde and turned right towards Finneston, where I grew up in the 1950's. Always love the big crane as it embedded in my memory from when I was about 4-5 yrs old. What the council has done to the Clydeside promenade is just incredible, the armadill is right there... More

Would say don't go there just to see the bridge. Walk over it while you're going to dinner, better idea.

The Squinty Bridge has very quickly become firm favourite and Glasgow landmark. Situated next to The Armadillo (Clyde Auditorium), The Hydro and The Finnieston Crane there is a lot to see in the vicinity. Park up and wander round to make the most of these landmarks.

I love the sight of this bridge it marks the end of my 5k run from where I stay. I push myself every time to see this bridge sooner rather than later unless it's my halfway point for a 10k. On a more informative note this bridge is a good example of modern architecture and crosses the Clyde just next... More

One of the too few foot bridges crossing the River Clyde in Glasgow – I just wish there was one between Govan and Partick. It does the job of crossing but also good for taking some interesting photographs of the river.

The squinty bridge features in many photos of Glasgow and the Clyde as it has become a key landmark. It links the south side, Glasgow Science Centre, BBC and STV studios with the north and the SECC, Hydro and city centre.

An interesting bridge with a good shape. Handy for crossing the Clyde with decent enough views. Not the most exciting thing to see in Glasgow but useful. Can be a bit grim when the weather is bad.

We arrived Glasgow and stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn city center. Our room looked out on the Clyde River. This beautiful bridge is picturesque at all times but particularly at sunrise and sunset!!
