Depends on where you want to go. The Dams are at the back and it is easier to get to them from Aurs Road, Barrhead.

By car M77 to Newton Mearns as you come off take a right and head for Barrhead.

Don't know if it is the Neilston train from Central that stops at Patterton Station.

If you are up for a walk you could make your way to Nitshill Road and use the path from the Ashoka at the Mill.

M77 to Arden cut off and turn right onto Nitshill Road past Sainsbury's to Ashoka. Good parking facilities.

Barrhead Train from Central to Nitshill on Nitshill Road turn right and past the Gala Bingo to Ashoka.

I parked on the wee back road, there's a few layby type thingies, usually guys park there when going to fish.
There is quite a bit of wild life around, I'm sure I saw an otter or a stoat(not quick enough with the camera ). There was more i could have seen, but it was very remote, felt a wee bit spooky on my own.

As Vice Chair of the Dams to Darnley Country Park. I would encourage everyone to visit the dams. Some improvement works have been carried out and more is planned for this year.

I am trying to encourage better access to information about the CP through a website and leaflets about the annual report of the Joint Committee between Glasgow and East Renfrewshire Council.

The road you refer to WM is Aurs Road and it is one of the few parking areas near the CP.

As the Dams to Darnley Country Park is mostly within the Glasgow boundary Should this not be moved to a more suitable location?

I went for a wonder from Nitshill Road upto the Dams.

This is mostly on the Glasgow side.

Now that there are more new houses in the area they have decided to give them a name.

Which part of Househillmuir did your gran live? (Glad to see you called it Househillmuir, some people just refere to the area as Househillwood)

You can see a full collection of my photos on my Flickr.

She lived at 345 I think, up the top end really, so not too far to go up the lane to the Chippy in Nitshill Road , then she moved to Cleeves. I know all of Pollok/Priesthill/Nitshill well, pretty much stayed with her weekends.

I live on Cleeves Road.

We should start a thread "Priesthill, Nitshill and Househillmuir".

I have a few photos and have been posting on the other site. There are a couple of guys on there from the area. We should get them over here for a wee project.

A new network of paths which will be linked to routes to Dams to Darnley Counrty Park.

Walk through the estate from Parkhouse Road to the far end of the estate to find the link.

At the side of the Show Home for Bryant Homes
