Linn Park, et al Sponsored by the Linn Park Gentlemen’s Walking Club is an excellent website covering the history, landscape, flora and fauna of Linn Park in Cathcart, Glasgow.

The headliners for this park are still mentioned, Snuff Mill Bridge, Cathcart Castle, Holmwood House, and of course, Mary, Queen of Scots but what’s really great about this site is the insistence that all of the park is important, and that the local people and industries are as important as the landowners and visiting royalty. Throughout, the current appearance of the park is tied to previous usage, and it’s backed up by a lot of decent research and evidence.

Besides which, what a great name for a club 😀
