The below link is mainly of Cambuslang, and Halfway. Some Burnside and Rutherglen too, if memory serves.

Now, I realise this is technically not Glasgow, (it was once though, right?! Until boundary changes?!) - Anyway, it's truly an EXCEPTIONAL site.

The guy has put in a LOT of work. If you do visit, please sign his guest book.

Enjoy....
