Tour Scotland Video Old Photographs Milngavie East Dunbartonshire

Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Milngavie, a town in East Dunbartonshire, Scotland. A Scottish town on the Allander Water, at the north western edge of Glasgow. It neighbours Bearsden. Although known today as a dormitory suburb of Glasgow, the town grew from a country village within the parish of New Kilpatrick to a minor industrial centre in the nineteenth century with paper mills and bleach works on the Allander River to the north east of the town centre. The land surrounding the village comprised several estates with tenant farms, amongst them Barloch, Clober, Craigton, Craigdhu, Dougalston, Douglas Mains and South Mains. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
