Thanks for your effort James. Yes, looks like I am being blocked from at least the images. Mind you, I am using my w@rks pc and trying to get access at home is a nightmare due to sons' No1+2.

I shall return (as McArthur said when he felt how cold the water was)

Going home for a long weekend this week and this area is a must (I'm from that way anyway), anyone got any suggestions as I really want to look more into this.

There's a section in Kelvingrove on the Battle.

The only other things related and still there are some of the street names, the monument and Crookston Castle a bit along the road

Thanks Alan. As I said, I'm from that way, however, I never realised there had been so much that had gone on practically on my doorstep so as I said, a wee visit is called for.

There's the stone at the Court Knowe across from the site of Cathcart Castle where Mary reputedly stood to watch the battle.

Some doubt this as Cathcart Castle was in Semple hands at the time, a family loyal to the Regent and who were on the Langside village flank of the Regent's army that day.  What better time to stand outside your enemy's house then when they're all out for the day having a square go?

There is only a Camphill Avenue in Glasgow John, I worked on the basis it would be near Camphill House so using Vinnie's favourite slider I had a wee look about the streetnames on the old map and then cross-referenced
