Milngavie 2020

Games Of The XXXII Olympiad



Step 11 : Showing the local environment

     Despite only being a half hour train or bus ride away from the centre of Scotlands busiest city, Milngavie is surrounded by mountains, farms and Mugdock.

     In a South Park like manner, the mountains that can be seen from Milngavie seem to be snow topped all year round. Although technically not in Milngavie, the mountains certainly are part of the scenery


Mountains - small and humble

     There are quite alot of farms around Milngavie. They provide the village with a scent of manure for a few days every year, and also provide a drunken Phil a chance to wonder if cow-tipping can actually happen


Farm lands

     Mostly known for it's castle and picturesque countryside walks, Mugdock Country Park is a great day out for all the family. Mugdock now boasts a rather tasty food area overlooking Mugdock Loch.

     Very probably the most distinctive tree in Milngavie is the Araucaria araucana (more commonly known as a monkey-puzzle tree) outside the doctors'.


Unsuprizingly the monkey-puzzle (the green one in the middle) is an evergreen
