An old postcard from just over 100 years ago showing Calderwood Castle. Sitting on the east Kilbride side of Calderwood Glen, the former castle is no longer there, long since demolished.
How amazing it would have been for this building to have survived and for the paths either side of the River Calder to have been maintained, rather than the current state of affairs, being overgrown, lost entirely or complete lack of maintenance.
I can’t help but feel heading up to Calderwood Castle would have been a great day out for anybody in Blantyre had it still been there.
