Glasgow Seaplane Terminal

I tried to locate the Glasgow seaplane terminal on the map, but could not find anything beyond a rather forsaken-looking jetty at
https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/55.85845/-4.29492 Also, it would seem Loch Lomond Seaplanes now depart their services from their headquarters near Cameron House on the shores of Loch Lomond - most appropriate for the name, but perhaps less convenient for passengers?

Is the Glasgow Terminal still operational? It seems doubtful.

Jan,
Correct - that was the jetty that Loch Lomond Seaplanes used.
Haven't seen a float plane on the River Clyde in Glasgow for years now.
G-LAUD Ce208 as you say now operates mainly from Cameron House Hotel off the A82 at Loch Lomond.
It is about a half hour walk from Balloch Railway Station.
BRgds,

That part of the Clyde is surprisingly busy with surface traffic, suspect operating from there all became a bit of a challenge.

Thanks! Thanks!

They used to whizz past the old Clyde Heliport. No gulls were harmed in making this photo...
