Great set Stucan

Its been 30 + years since i have been up that way but i think i recognise that fir tree with the bend in the trunk.

Above the bend at the bottom of the hill that runs above the pumping station?

Some things are new but others seem timeless.

Cheers Jock!

Its a nice wee walk / cycle. as for the tree im pretty sure its close to the 2 cottages just before the waterworks.

thanks st200

its got some nice scenery, pretty sure there are ruins of some dukes lodge in the woods there too.

Id avoid it on a fri/sat evening though as its close to civilisation and the heavy teams can sometimes be out in force

A 44m programme of works in East Renfrewshire has become the first project to be approved from the 1bn Glasgow and Clyde Valley City Deal.

The blueprint will see a new water sports park at Dams to Darnley Country Park, a new railway station in Barrhead and a sliproad from the M77.

The work was approved by the City Deal Cabinet of eight councils.

Under the City Deal, Westminster and Holyrood will give 500m each in additional funding.

The eight councils - East Renfrewshire, Glasgow, Inverclyde, Renfrewshire, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire, North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire - will supplement this by borrowing 130m.

The East Renfrewshire Council scheme, approved on Tuesday, will see a Wake Board centre established at Dams to Darnley Country Park by 2017.

'Bold vision'

A new train station will be built at Barrhead South to serve an area where 1,000 new homes are to be built.

And a new sliproad from the M77 will also improve transport links.

Work will start next month to clear the former Levern Works site in Barrhead before it is marketed for development.

East Renfrewshire Council leader Jim Fletcher, who sits on the City Deal cabinet, said the approved works represented a "fantastic and bold vision" for the area.

"This major investment will ensure East Renfrewshire continues to be one of the most desirable areas in Scotland to live, work and do business," he said.

"These proposals will create jobs, regenerate former industrial sites into modern developments, support new housing and hugely improve transport infrastructure.

"It is a massive deal for the area and we are thrilled to be part of this initiative."

I would be interested to see some maps and supporting documentation on this, but despite comments that work is due to start soon I have not seen any plans published on-line
