Picture Blog: Cathkin Park

Cathkin Park 2014

Today I took a jaunt down to Cathkin Park as it’s only a few miles away from my flat. 

I have always been intrigued by the former home of the now extinct Third Lanark AC. It is only a stones throw away from Hampden Park home of Scotland and Queens Park. At its peak the stadium had a 50,000 capacity. 

As the world turns it eyes onto the city of Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games, stadia like Celtic Park, Hampden and Ibrox will take to the spotlight. All the while Cathkin Park continues to house weeds, tress and trash! 

Kids still venture onto the pitch following the footsteps of Third Lanark legends. But alas instead of thousands of cheering fans they may have a few magpies on the ruined terraces. 

Hope you enjoy the pictures and the sense of history, that I always get walking through the park.
