My mate and I visited the old Dunglass pumping station in Bowling a couple of weekends ago. It was a bit of fun.
We first visited the site a number of years ago and tackled it from Dumbarton, and back then it was easy enough to get into from the cycle path. We tried it again last year and it was totally over grown so we just left it.
This time we decided to tackle it from the Bowling end and go through the old harbour. Which at first glance wasn't that easy as it has been boarded up now, but if you lok carefully and the tide is out, there is a wall you can climb up.
We went through the old deralict boat yard, noticing that a strange building we visited a couple of years ago was missing. I was quite annoyed with this because I really wanted to take pics of an odd room in there that was full of wierd stuff.
As we went through, we didn't think we would be able to get into Dunglass but jinking around the fence and clambering up an incline lets you in.
The area hasn't really changed much, the house is still there, I still want it. Although the large tanks that were set into the ground near the piers have all been filled in.
Leaving the place we couldn't be bothered with walking all the way back into bowling then back into Dumbarton so we brass necked it and left by the guard house. If the guard noticed us, he didn't show it.
