Strathclyde Geoconservation Group members have created a series of short information sheets to help introduce local geology to a wider audience. Glasgow’s drumlins are one such subject.
Drumlins are features of glacial deposition shaped a bit like half an egg. Glasgow was built on a ‘swarm’ of these rounded hills. The well known Gardner Street in the Partick district tackles the drumlin slope head on!
The information sheet includes a sketch from 1935 showing some of the drumlins and city district names.
