If the EK one was supplied by Loch Katrine,
what about the one at Dullator, near cumbernauld.
It may have been one of them as well.

There's one in Milngavie, up the hill to the right from the station. There's also on in Drumchapel, underlit in pink, visible when driving along the Boulevard between Kilbowie Rd & Drumry roundabouts. Think these might among the eight already counted though.

To get to the Barloch one, using Milngavie Stn as a starting point, you'd turn right out of the station car park and head straight across the traffic lights past a big red sandstone church called St Pauls up a steep hill called Baldernock Rd. At the top of the hill you'd go left into Balfleurs St, then left into Campsie Dr, right into Middleton Dr, and left into TOWER Place. HTH. :)
