I sailed there in the 60's and 70's in Kestrels. Glasgow School's Sailing Club 'The Brassbounders' were based there.
Many many happy memories! I think I got the Number 54 bus out....

It is indeed Hogganfield Loch.
Memorably, several years ago Tony Blair went on the Radio Clyde Breakfast Show, and took questions live on air.
Q. Prime Minister, ah need some help wi ma scheme an' that. Can you help?
A. Well, Alastair. We've got a number of schemes that might be able to help people just like you. Youth Opportunities, apprenticeships, back to work schemes etc etc.

You might be right - I got on the bus at Eglinton Toll. Did the bus go to Riddrie?
I sailed Herons and Gull in the 159 Glasgow Sea Scouts. Small world!

The home where I was raised and where Mum still lives is down the hill behind the water tower, a bit more beyond towards the River Clyde.
I never sailed on Hogganfield Loch. I learned to sail at Strathclyde Country Park and Hillend Loch, Caldercruix.Having time is unavoidable.
