is the old building on the corner of mcleod st and castle street the one featured in billy connollys world tour of scotland in which he says to camera that its the oldest building in glasgow though i may be mistaken on this though
will need to check the video to double check this but am sure this is the same location

Researcher, the building you are referring to is the Provan's Lordship, the oldest house in Glasgow (1471), the oldest building in the city is of course Glasgow Cathedral built between the 13th and 15th centuries.

Why was the water pumping station in High Street pulled down?  I don't remember it but from pictures it looks like a lovely building.   Was the land earmarked for something else?

The eastern flank of the Inner Ring Road. This also explains why the
tenements across the street from where the pumping station stood were
demolished in the 1980s. It's still a gap site.

Thanks.  Had a quick look on the internet at stuff about the townhead interchange.  What a bloody nightmare.   Thank God it didn't come to fruition.  10 bridges and 6 pedestrian subways?     No doubt some twit will try to resurrect these plans in years to come.
