Best Western have 6 hotels in Clydeside

> See all hotels in Clydeside, Glasgow City

Booking a hotel in Clydeside lands you next to Scotland's traditional shipbuilding base on the River Clyde, which saw the birth of great liners such as the Queen Mary and the QE2. These days the area is better known for its magnificent scenery, world famous whisky, and the cultural hub of Glasgow which lies at its heart.

Town and city breaks in Clydeside

Stay at a Clydeside hotel to fully explore Glasgow, Scotland's biggest city, known for its top-class shopping, award-winning restaurants and vibrant nightlife. Drive a lunar buggy at the Glasgow Science Centre, full of hands-on displays, or gaze at Jupiter through a 12ft telecope at the Coats Observatory. Creative types will love the Kelvingrove Art Gallery And Museum. To the east of Glasgow you'll find the World Heritage Site of New Lanark, an 18th century model village whose mills were once powered by the Clyde's powerful waterfalls.

Holidays in the Clydeside countryside

Wherever your hotel in Clydeside is based, step straight into the heart of beautiful Scottish landscapes. Twenty minutes outside of Glasgow you'll find yourself on the 'bonnie banks' of Loch Lomond, its beauty immortalised by Sir Walter Scott and Robert Burns. A few miles west are the Victorian seaside resorts of Helensburgh and Gourock. Helensburgh is home to the famous creation of architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Hill House. Once you've seen the peculiar Granny Kempock Stone, take the ferry from Gourock to Dunoon and explore the Benmore Botanic Gardens with its vast collection of rhododendrons and giant redwoods. Walkers and hikers will be at home in Clydeside with so many trails and areas of natural beauty to explore, from the Campsie Hills to parks such as Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park and Chatelherault Country Park in Hamilton, once the hunting grounds of the Dukes of Hamilton.

Beach holidays in Clydeside

For locals, a trip to the seaside was once known as 'going doon the watter', and resorts such as Rothesay, on the island of Bute, as well as Largs and Ayr on the Clydeside coast, still retain their charm. Build sandcastles by the sea and have fish and chips on the prom, an essential part of any day out along the coast. Walk across hills and stroll down beaches on the Isle of Arran, the remote island on the Firth of Clyde. Keep an eye out as you look out to sea for leaping dolphins. Outside the gate of Brodick Castle you can catch a glimpse of seals basking on the rocks, while deer have been known to roam contentedly amongst the island's pedestrians in the villages.

Attractions in Clydeside

Golf fans might want to test their mettle on the many courses to be found across the area; Prestwick is the birthplace of the Open Championship. At Dumbarton Castle you can learn about the historic building's links to the wizard Merlin, Mary Queen of Scots, and William Wallace. The site of the castle, atop a plug of volcanic rock overlooking the town of Dumbarton, has been host to an important settlement since the Iron Age. Soak up the cultural delights of Glasgow at one of the city's many music venues, festivals and theatres. Book a hotel in Clydeside to fully explore this delightful Scottish county.
