This huge crane is one of the last remnants of Glasgow's industrial past. Huge ships were built on the River Clyde. At 46 meters high, this crane is one of the largest in England, and today is used for bungee jumping. It is located a few miles from Glasgow. Look online for the schedule, as it opens only in summer and not every day. If we find it closed, as was my case, we can always go underneath it, and admire this gem of Scotland's industrial past.

One of the biggest water areas in the park is the Mugdock dam, which has created a little lake in which you can fish. There is a parking lot next to it, and a promenade follows the shape of the dam, which many people use for jogging, walking their dogs or even horse riding. It surprised me to find a dam here, as there is plenty of water, with nearly 6 smaller lakes in the area. The dam belongs to the lands of Castle Mugdock. It seems that the Marquis wanted his own private fishing area, but permission was denied, so he reapplied for a dam. After a process that allegedly involved a few bribes, it was approved!
