Ssdt & Pre-65 - Travel Tip

Recommended Posts

If you're heading up from Englandshire for the Pre-65 or SSDT and normally go Glasgow -> Erskine Bridge -> Loch Lomond -> Crianlarich then life got a little bit easier over the past year. If you normally go up to Stirling then via Callander you can ignore this!

The M74 motorway has now been extended into the centre of Glasgow so you no longer need to take the M73 then the M8 (which can be hell at certain times of the day)

It's dead simple and as it's just one motorway straight in, you can't possibly get lost!

As you approach Glasgow you would normally come off the M74 onto the M73 for a short distance then onto the M8. Don't. Stay on the M74.

Follow the M74 right to the end - watch the speed limit as it drops to 50 as you get into the centre of Glasgow. Strathclyde's finest are known to haunt it as it's a new road...

At the end of the M74 you will rejoin the M8 south of the river Clyde and on the correct side of the Kingston Bridge. From there it's just straight out past the airport to the Erskine Bridge as you normally would.

So which is the quickest?

We have been going one way then the other and now were back to the first way!!! We have also been for a trip through the middle of Glasgow once . That definitely wasn't the quickest!

We tend to go Stirling way now.
