hey there

hi, Also! :D This area glas-cu/ glescae et al was also clearly known as: Cathures. I'm not sure what that means. Life before the Anglo Saxons eh? ;) I don't want to claim to be an expert I just follow my heart and recall what I remember from books. ps. after leaving Glasgow for another country I oft...

hey there

hi, You could be right. We'd have to look at the translation of the ancient welsh of Glescae/Gleschae et al. My own take on it, if I may be so bold: The area around the Molendinar stream where it flows through the valley(obviously now underground) and where the Cathedral now stands was known as the ...

Anyone have any images of Greenhead Street in Bridgeton before the calamatous changes?

I can't find any on Virtual Mitchell apart from the old Baths.

I know it's a long shot.

It's no wonder that the Salmon is synonymous with Glasgow - the Clyde tributaries and the Clyde itself, must have been full of them. I read an article recently on the net that some guy caught a 52lb salmon in the clyde - not too far outside Glasgow. It's a shame they narrowed the Clyde but Glasgow w...

:) - the "luggie"? What a class name. For some reason the "luggie" seemed smaller to me when i fished there. But i''m sure you're spot on. Do you know what the celtic name for the "Kelvin" would have been? I have a wonderful old book about early Glasgow - and I think it...

Electricsprout - those images are breathtaking. Some of the nicest pics I've seen in a long time.

Really crisp and obviously taken with love and tenderness.

It was a few years ago mind - but a local did tell me that a 32lb trout lurked in the river around the kirkintiloch area. Another small river joins the Kelvin at a small industrial estate in Kirkie and it widens from there. The upper reaches of the kelvin have always been relatively clean and have a...

Any river with a growing population of Salmon will have lampreys following them in from the sea. Ayr river also has a pretty large population of lampreys as it has a very healthy salmon population. It would make my day to see a salmon jumping (;)) a weir in the kelvin or swimming passed some submerg...

leap - jump. All the same to me.

If you google the words: fly fishing on the river kelvin in glasgow, you will find a site run by a guy who does just that.

I walked down to the river couple of years ago - and got talking with a couple standing near a weir not far from the kirklee bridge.

They told me they come down to watch the salmon jumping. I couldn't believe it.

In all honesty - I can't think of a river as beautiful as the Kelvin.

It's like - the perfect river. God broke the mould when he made it.

stunning

Stunning pics cumbo.

To think of all the people that have walked through the closes and had the pleasure of looking at those for over a century.

My favourite design is the third from the bottom.

all the best

The Langside ex Church is stunning. The Architecture is perfect and inspired. I have a thing for greek and roman porticos and must have looked at hundreds - but that is damn near perfect. The curved side stairwells are flawlessly integrated. We did classical architecture so well in Scotland - took i...
