Dobbie's Loan

Dobbie's Loan gained its name from the local landowner John Dobbie and is believed to have been part of the route of an old Roman road from Dumbarton to Glasgow. It stretched from the Cathedral through to Garscube in the north of the city and was originally used as the main thoroughfare for cattle drovers on their way to the markets on Glasgow Green. As Port Dundas developed so did the importance of Dobbie's Loan and even after the decline in the fortunes of the Forth and Clyde Canal it still remained an important business location, although much smaller than it once was. It now acts as a feeder road to the M8 motorway.
