Neilston Pad
Neilston Pad
Neilston Pad is a modest, flat-topped hill, steep on three sides and particularly to the east, just south of the town of Neilston. Geologically it is a volcanic plug. Like many other isolated, steep wee hills of this kind its summit gives great views and it is conspicuous from quite a long way off (e.g. looking straight down Byres Road in Glasgow's West End). Just beyond we see Craighall Dam.
