Getting there:

View Atypical Root - Public Art Trail in a larger map

Coming from the west
We'd suggest a stroll down the Broomielaw and Lancefeild Quay, taking in several Atyp works along the way before crossing over the Science Centre/BBC foot bridge to see what's on offer there. The Govan Beacon can be seen from just in front of the Millennium Tower.

To get to Clydebrae Street head through the Science Centre car parks past the Hub building, out to Govan Road. Take a right heading WEST on Govan Road you'll pass old Town Hall keeping the river generally on your right. You should see several Atyp markers as you go. As you approach the old dry docks there will be a high wall keeping you out. Clydebrae Street will be a right hand turn and you'll see a sign for a Tyre Service Centre on the corner.

There may still be free burgers if you get there early enough!

Via the Underground: 5min walk.
Exit at Govan Station and head EAST down Govan Road.
You should be able to see the Millennium Tower at Glasgow Science Centre over the roof tops ahead and a green area will soon be on your left. 
As the green area ends, take your first left onto Naplier St - and just after some construction on your right, cross over to Clydebrae St ( Naplier & Clydebrae do not connect for vehicle traffic ).
Continue down Clydebrae St. about half a block. Clydebrae Studios and the Govanheim will be on your right, the river on your left.
