Redlees Urban Park

Hiking With Kids You would think by the title, that this is an outdoor walk in the middle of  sprawling city. Well it's not, it is situated just outside of Blantyre, on the outskirts of Glasgow. The area that the walk is situated is small and is probably only 2-3 miles in total distance. It does take in a pond, where any life would struggle to survive, and a compact walk along the cliff edge.  The most interesting part of the walk was the visit to the old AA battery site. No, not an abandoned Duracell factory (other batteries are available) but a disused WW 2 site which used to contain anti aircraft guns. Some of the buildings are mostly intact, and this is great for kids who want to explore.
