Earl Street tenements
This residential street was build in the 1890s to provide homes for the influx of workers to Scotstoun in the late 19th century. The buildings are typical of Glasgow’s red sandstone tenements. Sandwiched between Dumbarton Road and the NCN 7 cycle path, Earl Street starts and ends at the boundaries of Scotstoun - Henrietta Street (east) and Ardsloy Place (west) - making it the longest street entirely within Scostoun.
