Restored in 1999, the SV Glenlee is one of only five Clyde-built sailing ships that remain afloat. Built in 1896, it circumnavigated Cape Horn 15 times and a video offers black-and-white film showing just how rough the journey could be. Check out the logbook in the poop cabin. It offers a more grim picture of life onboard as the captain's diary documents how one particular sailor was taken ill, recovered, and then died. You can explore the ship and, while onboard, take in an exhibition detailing cargo-trading history. You'll find it outside the Riverside Museum.
