This is a most unusual photo from the early 1930s. Pictured are the ruins of Blantyre Priory, but photographed from an unusual viewpoint, from the Bothwell side of the River Clyde, near Bothwell Castle. As can be seen the trees around the Priory are a LOT less mature than they are today and the Priory itself is visibly much more intact.
The photo was taken by Rev Charles. L Dick and also captures Blantyre Craig, a large rock that the Priory sits upon. Today, very little remains of Blantyre’s oldest building.
