Maryhill Glasgow :: Shared Description

Maryhill is a district in the north west of Glasgow. It takes its name from Mary Hill (1730-1809), who was the last line of the Hill family and who owned the estate on which Maryhill now stands.

The area consists of a mix of traditional sandstone Glasgow tenements, alongside towerblocks and more recent low-rise housing developments.

The districts boasts one of the original Carnegie Libraries LinkExternal link as well as a a fine Burgh Hall which is part of a cluster of listed buildings on that part of Maryhill Road.

The Forth and Clyde Canal runs through the districts, with the 136m long, 19m high Kelvin Aqueduct, the Maryhill locks and basins and Kelvin Dock being the prominent features. The Port Dundas branch of the canal also originates in Maryhill.

Maryhill is home to Partick Thistle FC, who play at Firhill, on the banks of the canal.
