The River Clyde flows from its source in lowland Scotland to its mouth near Glasgow at the Firth of Clyde, where it flows into the North Channel of the Irish Sea. The Clyde Valley near New Lanark is particulary fertile, and home to many tomato greenhouses and garden centres, as well as being a magnet for tourists. The Clyde is also well-known for its shipbuilding which has declined in recent years, but saw the launch of such well-known ocean liners as the Queen Mary and the Queen Elizabeth 2.
