Titan Clydebank

All that remains of QE2's "birthplace", along with the out-fitting basin - John Brown's Shipyard, once part of the largest shipbuilding group in the World.
The Titan Crane is 100 years old, the oldest of the 5 Titans on the Clyde, 150ft high and 150 tons [In 1938 it was upgraded to be able to lift 200 tons]. Well worth a visit.
