Sighthill Park

A public park in N Glasgow, Sighthill Park lies between Sighthill and Port Dundas, with its canal basins, a half-mile (0.8 km) northeast of Queen Street Station. The park is laid out over the slopes of Broom Hill, a modest summit which rises to 68m (223 feet), and once represented the policies of Broomhill House (demolished). The St. Rollox Railway Depot once occupied its southern section, and the park is still undermined by two railway tunnels; one providing access to Queen Street Station and the other abandoned. Its southern margin is now demarked by the M8 motorway which follows the route of the former Monkland Canal. The park is managed by Glasgow City Council and is perhaps best known today for the Sighthill Stone Circle, set out with astronomical accuracy in 1979 but never completed.
