Gilshochill

An elevated suburban district of N Glasgow, Gilshochill is draped over hill a quarter-mile (0.5 km) north northeast of Maryhill, bordered to the south by the Forth and Clyde Canal. The area comprises a mix of public and private housing of different ages; from Victorian tenements and villas, through Edwardian terraces, blocks of flats built in the 1930s, 1950s and 1970s, and high-rise blocks to the north. Significant urban renewal has taken place from the late 20th C., while much of the public housing stock has been sold through right-to-buy legislation. Fine buildings include the former Maryhill Primary School, on its hill-top site. Three railway stations lie along the Maryhill Line immediately to the north; namely Maryhill, Summerston and Gilshochill Railway Station.
