Glasgow City Chambers, above.   It takes a lot for the River Clyde to freeze over, usually a week or more of consistent below zero daytime temperatures coupled with a minus 5 to minus 10 week long sustained freeze up w ..read more

When the dominant weather fronts sink down from the Arctic North or blow in from the East freezing temperatures occur over the UK   Binghams Pond. Glasgow.

                                                     ALL PHOTOS CLICK FULL SCREEN   As I've not been out walking on the hills much the last few years ( the reasons which I'll probably explain in a future post after January) I fancied an overnight trip into a bothy for a change and my hill-walking club friend John kindly obliged as he was keen as well. As he was driving up after work on the Friday night we wanted a fairly short car journey then short wal ..read more

Cambuslang and Castlemilk Day.

     Another trip out to Cambuslang, this time on a good day, and a hill and a park I'd not visited before. Cambuslang Main Street is unusual in that the one side of it, facing south, consists of a long line of traditional stone tenements from the  late 1800s - early 1900s era with a similar long line of shops underneath similar to Byres road or Dumbarton Road in Partick or most other older town centre districts along with the usual collection of public buildings in the nearby back streets.  Cambuslang Public School here, built in 1882, as you can see in the 2nd ..read more

                                                  ALL PHOTOS CLICK FULL SCREEN.  Another enjoyable outing, this time through familiar districts yet picking out a less travelled path linking them all up. I started out in Bellahouston Park, seen above, but walked sideways instead of exploring up the hill, keeping within the park boundaries as a plea ..read more

A Hallow's... een tale.  This is a gallery of autumnal colours. Some captured on walks alone and a few with Anne for company. More earthly leaves on our third rock from the sun than a universe of stars suspended above? Count them up and you decide. A Garden of Deli ..read more

                                                   ALL PHOTOS CLICK FULL SCREEN.   This was a walk instigated by my friend Anne, who fancied  an urban city centre stroll for a change but I enjoyed it as well. As you can see it was a lovely day and I agreed to meet her here, which was in the heart of Partick where Partick Train Station, Subway, and bus hub interlink and share a combined open space together guarded to the north by three massive gable end te ..read more

                                                  ALL PHOTOS CLICK FULL SCREEN. A recent solo walk in Glasgow City Centre saw me get off at Anderston Train Station, as usual, then head over the nearby pedestrian bridge to Glasgow's banking and financial district.  One of the reasons I like this approach so much is that on foot, from this direction, this western edge of Glasgow City Centre feels and looks like a very modern metropolis. Like the emerald city of Oz i ..read more

                                               ALL PHOTOS CLICK FULL SCREEN   A view of the recently developed Claypits at Maryhill. My initial plan/idea was to walk from Gartnavel Hospital and Binghams Pond (see last post a week ago for that) and end up at the newly completed Claypits but once we had wandered round that (Anne and myself) we found ourselves on the edge of the district called Hamiltonhill.    Neither of us had been in Hamiltonhill before, a wo ..read more
