Yoker (Scottish Gaelic: An Eochair) is a district of Glasgow, Scotland, on the northern bank of the Clyde east of Clydebank, 5 miles (8 kilometres) west of the city centre. From the fourteenth century, a ferry has linked Yoker with Renfrew on the south bank. Although shipbuilding has declined, the Yarrows shipyard, now owned by BAE Systems, is still in operation. The name is an Anglicisation of the Scottish Gaelic Eochair meaning a river bank. From 2006, there has been substantial investment in residential property in the area, due to the popularity of its location on the banks of the Clyde.
