the clydebank map shown there has linnvale in the middle of the shipyard,strange place for a housing scheme.linnvale boundaries are kilbowie rd,great western road ,drumry railway,and the forth and clyde canal.just in case any of you decide to visit linnvale and find yourself in an abandoned shipyard.

If you watch the video, you'll see that it's a moving map, and that it's moving up towards Linnvale at the canal, at that point! YouTube just chose an image to represent the video that isn't, well, very representative.

That's interesting stuff! My Mum is from Whitecrook, so she might know something about it.

The walking tours company is coming along well. We're going to begin our trials this coming Bank Holiday weekend, from the first to the third of May, beginning at Queens' Quay, near the Purser's Office. I'll be abseiling off the Titan Crane, at around 10:30!

I'd like to invite anyone on this forum to come along, and take part in a complimentary 90-minute walking tour, either at 11:00, or 15:00, on Saturday, Sunday or Monday.

To book your places on the walking tour, please visit http://www.clydewalkingtours.co.uk/, email hello@clydewalkingtours.co.uk, or telephone +44 (0)871 900 2111 or +44 (0)7949 252 250.

Acht, my past belongs to me. Sometimes though, she is a stranger to me.
I often miss her and occasionally long for her, though she will never, in truth, be entirely mine again. That's ok, I'll thank her for the memory & move forward, though perhaps glancing back now and then.
