The City Chambers have been talking to them about it at recently as the 18th January.
Has anyone got a map of where this is that they can scan and post here as i'd like to go along to get some photos and i'm not sure how to get there.

Thanks

Explosions/vibrations were pretty loud and clear here in the office (Cambuslang/Carmyle).
You wanna come along? It ain't like it used to be, but, uh, it'll do.

Not a day for hanging out the washing in Rutherglen!

Still can't believe I caught it going down in photo No. 2 bearing in mind the sound from it didn't hit me till about 10 seconds after it was down.

Very nice PG, that captue is what it's all about, eh?

Schiehallion, what is that white curved structure to the left of the dust cloud in your excellent pics? (Nice to see the event from a distance, paints it into it's particular space in relation to the rest of Glasgow)

Aye the white roof is Hampden with the Weir Pumps chimney in front of it. Directly behind the two multis on the left is Celtic Park, you can see the straight white line of the roof. Above Celtic park is the three multis at Cranhill and beyond that away on the horizon is Cumbernauld.
