    Hey,
    well this was hardly a mad adventure into the unknown, as these docks have been explored many times
    I learned about them on Hidden Glasgow :
    to have a look at their very interesting report from before demolition (2003) :

    So old news really, but I was glad of the shots I got, so here they are :

    most of the buildings have been knocked down now, but the place still bears a strong sense of what the heyday of the shipyards could have been like.

    I though this building had a very nice structure:

    this bridge (along with the 2 others) actually used to be pulled under the dock to allow ships to enter! it's massive
    you can see how it works on the blueprints (thanks HiddenGlasgow):
