Our house in Glentyan gave us a view into the garden of this villa and we watched bemused for a while as the owner built a sizeable boat (maybe 35 feet) in his grounds. Memory may be imperfect but I think he got it to water via the aforementioned power station.
I'm surprised that McQuatter's Lane doesn't seem to have had a mention so far. It was a regular haunt for bird nesting and generally getting up to no good.
Welcome to Hidden Glasgow apaterson.
Nice to hear from someone with local memories. I am not a long time resident of the area but would be interested to hear more about McQuatter's Lane!
Do you have any old photos of the area?
