🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Clydebank is a town in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland. Situated on the north bank of the River Clyde, it borders the village of Old Kilpatrick (with Bowling and Milton beyond) to the west, and the Yoker and Drumchapel areas of the adjacent City of Glasgow immediately to the east. Depending on the definition of the town's boundaries, the suburban areas of Duntocher, Faifley and Hardgate either surround Clydebank to the north, or are its northern outskirts, with the Kilpatrick Hills beyond.

Historically part of Dunbartonshire, Clydebank is part of the registration County of Dumbarton, the Dunbartonshire Crown Lieutenancy area, and the wider urban area of Greater Glasgow.

A major employer in the town is the John Brown & Company shipyard, which has been redeveloped with tourist attractions such as the Titan Clydebank Crane and a new campus for Clydebank College, part of the merged institution West College Scotland.

Clydebank Business Park was built on part of the site of the former Singer Sewing Machine factory. The site was identified as an Enterprise Zone in 1981 and the business park developed to provide industrial and business accommodation for such uses. It is located centrally within Clydebank, adjacent to the town centre and Clyde Shopping Centre. It is easily accessible by public transport with Singer rail station sitting immediately adjacent to the north, and Clydebank rail station within walking distance to the south. A frequent bus service runs along Kilbowie Road at the eastern entrance to the Business Park, with more services available within walk- ing distance from locations within the town centre. Road access is also good with Kilbowie Road linking to the A82 and A814 which provide access to the rest of Clydebank and the West Dunbartonshire area, Glasgow City Centre and via the Erskine Bridge and Clyde Tunnel to the wider trunk road network.

The town is home to the independent Clydebank Co-operative Society which has a number of outlets in the town.
