THE PEEL OF DRUMRY.
(Via RED CAR TO ANNIESLAND OR GREEN CAR TO KNlGHTSWOOD)
From Anniesland Cross there is a modest and pleasant ramble of four miles to the Peel of Drumry, passing en route Knightswood, a place-name of Templar significance, thence crossing the canal, through the pretty suburb of Drumchapel, and by the stately gates of Garscadden. Pitscottie records the execution at Edinburgh in 1447, of “Sir Robert Livingstone of Drumry, Lord Treasurer of Scotland.” The last of the Livingstones perished on Flodden Field, and in 1529 Drumry passed to Laurence Crawford of Kilbirnie, father of the famous Captain Thomas Crawford who captured Dunbarton Castle, and was eventually the laird of Jordanhill. The Peel now forms part of a farm-steading. It has pictorial as well as historic interests for the wayfarer.
