Titan Crane

Industrial

Queens Quays, Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire, G81 1BF

    A century-old crane that has been transformed into a popular tourist attraction, the Titan is one of Scotland's most unusual engineering feats.

    The Titan towers 150 ft over the Clyde, and on a clear evening you can see the mighty cantilever crane from miles away, thanks to its nightly illuminations.

    Commissioned in the first years of the 20th century, the crane was built in the heart of the shipbuilding hub of Clydebank and finished in 1907. A hundred years later, Titan Crane reopened as one of Scotland’s most unique tourist attractions, acting as a lookout point over Glasgow.

    A trip to the Titan lets you travel back in time to relive Clydebank’s past, as it also acts as a museum celebrating the area’s shipbuilding heritage. Among its exhibits, you can watch the launches of the Queen Mary and QE2 from John Brown’s in the 1930s and 1960s.

    Open only seasonally from May to October each year, bungee jumps from the crane’s summit are available on limited dates. 

    Online bookings are available.
