Clydebank is a West Dunbartonshire town on the northern bank of the River Clyde. It borders Dumbarton to the west, as well as Milngavie in East Dunbartonshire plus the Yoker and Drumchapel districts in the adjacent City of Glasgow. Having been badly damaged during bombing raids in World War II, much of Clydebank's housing was constructed by the council from the 1950s onwards.
Train services are provided from Clydebank, Drumry, Dalmuir, Yoker, Kilpatrick and Singer railway stations. Bus connections to Glasgow, Dumbarton and outlying suburbs of Clydebank are centred on the bus terminus outside the Clyde Shopping Centre.
