Take A Trip "Doon The Watter"
Long before the advent of cheap package breaks, the typical Glaswegian summer holiday ritual was to take a trip "doon the watter" on one of the pleasure boats that serviced the seaside resorts on the Firth of Clyde. With several cruise companies operating routes is still possible to escape the city in such a fashion. Especially evocative is an excursion on the Waverley -- the only sea-going paddle steamer in the world.
