I lived at 214 Castlemilk Drive untill 1963 and then I moved with my parents to Canada,I was about 7 at the time.
I still have some good memories of Castlemilk adn have come home a couple of times in the 80's.

Many thanks for the Photos,it must of been very sad for the people that lived there to see there old home knocked down.
I was digging through my own photos and found one of an old family friend up on top of Caslemilk.
Helen Scott with her dog Glen,I think it would of been taken in the late 70's or early 80's.
