VERY cool abandoned water tower. Behind Crookston Catle in the woods if you want to find it.

Its a precarious climb up the stairs (no comforting bannisters), but the view from the top is quite fantastic...see above.

It, of course, had its very own baby team who claim the place ast their castle no doubt and summon the tribes to meet by dropping large rocks on sheet metal (it was the door that blocked the stairs previously).

Small clarification - there are TWO in East Kilbride.
One at Whitehills, and another at Greenhills.
