Glasgow - Cathcart Old and New

Stories of the wee Glasgow village and the history that runs through it

Join us on a tour of one of Glasgow's oldest villages and best kept secrets. Cathcart has been a site of settlement since the neolithic age. It has grown from a countryside hamlet, to a site of international significance for architecture, industry and people. We will follow the flow of the river that runs through it in a two hour tour along city streets and parkland.
