Eh, no. They're all set back from the main road, and I don't think people would take to kindly to someone wandering in with a camera!
Look on Google maps. One is at the bottom of Carntynehall Road, along from a big shed marked "R&C Leisure" on the maps view, the other is just at the junction of Old Shettleston Road and Duror Street, just before the railway bridge. They are, to be honest, just static caravan parks, with cars parked outside and the usual accoutrements of families (like those ubiquitous bloody trampolines). There's nothing really which sets them apart from the other houses in that part of Carntyne really.
I thought "itinerant people" was the new name for jakeys? Anyway, there was a Romany family lived at the end of my street, and they were always very particular in pointing out that they were very different to "Tinkers" or "Gypsies". I think if you're not sure of someone's actual heritage, it's best not to call them anything.
