Great shots all :-)
Here's another, the lane beside Anniesland Station (don't know if it has a name), with cart stones to ease carts up the hill. On checking old maps this looks to be the original road to the station.

That's the place with the "Dog Wash", sort of like a car wash but when it leaks it leaves deep poodles all over the road ::):
