Partickhill


Partickhill

Partickhill ("Bhrae na Partaig" Gaelic) is a small residential area of the Partick district of the city of Glasgow. Located to the north of Partick, south of Hyndland and west of Hillhead, it contains mixed housing stock of tenemental type property and villa style houses, as well as some terraced homes.

There was a Partickhill railway station which closed in 1979, being replaced by Partick railway station, located just to the south of the site of the old station. Middlefield Special School, which opened in 1907 is in the area, occupying the building of the former Anderston Street School's Cripple Children's Class. The school specialises in the education and care of autistic children.

The area lacks amenities of its own, but is closely located to those available on either Hyndland Road or Dumbarton Road. There is however a Partickhill Bowling and Tennis Club, which is located on the main street in the area, Partickhill Road.
