The so-called 'three towns' of Mugdock - Eastertown, Middletown and Westertown - once occupied a strategic location between Glasgow and the North, with a great vista southwards towards Glasgow. Westertown, now the modern village of Mugdock, is situated in Stirling Council Area, 2 miles (3 km) north of Milngavie and 10 miles (16 km) north of Glasgow. Mugdock Castle, which lies to the northwest, dates from the 14th Century. It was a stronghold of the Grahams of Montrose who built a mansion here in the 17th century before abandoning the site in favour of Buchanan Castle to the north. Partially restored in the 1880s, the castle and its policies now form part of Mugdock Country Park which lies on the West Highland Way.
