Hogganfield Glasgow Caught in Old Photographs

Hogganfield Glasgow Caught in Old Photographs

Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Hogganfield a district in the Scottish city of Glasgow, located to the north east of the city centre. Hogganfield is surrounded by the Glasgow districts of Blackhill, Craigend, Millerston, Provanmill, Riddrie, Robroyston, Ruchazie and Stepps. The M80, Stepps bypass, separates Hogganfield from Robroyston. Hogganfield is one of the highest points in Glasgow. The Molendinar Burn, a key influence in the siting of the city of Glasgow by St Kentigern flows from Frankfield Loch through Hogganfield Loch which is mentioned in the Thomas Richardson map of 1795. The loch is now part of a public park and bird sanctuary, the rare jack snipe as it travels from Siberia has been seen in the park. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.



John Fisher says:

I had no idea there was housing on the actual bank of the loch. The tea rooms are long gone. It became a restaurant in the mid 90's, firstly the Aqua Bay & then the Lido. It was demolished in 1998.
