Jock the photo of the overgrown garden is the one I was referring to as Parkhouse House. The name is above the door.

Pollok Castle is near Aurs Road in that general direction. I passed it on a walk a while back. But I am not a hundred percent sure of the exact location.

The original was demolished but the new house is still called Pollok Castle.

On your other post they are great photos of Rouken Glen Park.

The park was owned by Glasgow but passed to East Renfrewshire Council following a change to the City's boundary.

It is a great park. I unfortunately have never been up there with a camera. Will need to try and get there soon there is a lot worth photographing.

Thanks John

My sence of direction isn't as bad as my wife keeps telling me.
I meant to get up there with my camera as I was so surprised to see that there was a Pollok Castle. There are lots of interesting little things all over the place and well worth a wander with a camera.
