Donald Quay Light






Donald Quay Light at old Kilpatrick the cast iron light was erected in the 19th century to indicate a difficult bend in the river a similar light can be seen at Dalmuir Clydebank.
The light was updated to a solar light in 2013.
According to old Ordnance Survey maps there was ferry crossing at this point.


  Lanarkshire and Dumbarton Railway Company built a line alongside the Forth and Clyde canal, land had to be reclaimed from the river ,a wall was erected to support the line and sidings. The village of bowling can be seen in the distance.
