North Kelvinside


(North Kelvin)

An area of Glasgow's West End, North Kelvinside is, confusingly, to the east of Kelvinside, 2 miles (3 km) northwest of the city centre. It lies between the River Kelvin to the southwest and the Firth and Clyde Canal to the northeast. Also known as North Kelvin, tenement housing prevails here, although there are some Victorian townhouses and villas, together with former council houses. Notable buildings include the Kelvin Stevenson Memorial Church (1898) and the St. Charles Roman Catholic Church (1960). The area is well-served by schools, including North Kelvinside Secondary School and St. Columba's R.C. School. To the west lies Glasgow's Botanic Garden while to the south, across the Kelvin, lies the district of Hillhead and the University of Glasgow.
