Cathkin House over the years

Cathkin House stands high above Burnside and was my birth place in the 1960s. At that time it was a childrens home and operated by NCH. It then became a old age home  and was finally closed and boarded up about 2006. It stood derelect for years and then about 2010 it was to be converted into flats. In the early 70s it was a wonderful house with loads of open ground around it and 2 small gate cottages and a larger main house where my grandparents lived!! We lived in the small gate cottage at the South gate leading onto the B759 Cathkin Road. Unfortunately in the late 70s all the ground was sold and many new houses were constructed and the whole place was destroyed. Now its simply a housing estate!!
