We have a report below from John Glen of Glen Logistics Ltd.
This site does appear to be secure – it’s basically an enclosed industrial estate with some pretty big firms occupying the site. It’s situated in a very run down / derelict area. I left my truck here for three nights and would do so again if I need to park West of Glasgow (ie West of the busiest bits of the M8). I didn’t use the facilities, although I was offered a key to the toilet/shower, which I believe were inside one of the main industrial blocks. The catering facilities are probably only available when the resident businesses on the estate are open.
It would be unwise to venture beyond the site at night. I took a bus to Paisley Gilmour Street in daylight hours. When I returned to fetch my truck, I decided to pay £5 for a taxi! I asked the taxi driver if there were any good local pubs – his advice was to go into Glasgow! In fact, he won’t work the area after 22:00.
To summarise, this is a handy spot to know, and you’re pretty safe within the perimeter of the industrial park, but take care if you plan to visit the local pubs!
I have shown here all the comments from John Glen – on balance it;s a fair report and reasonable for you all to be aware as he is. I would regard it as a Commendation for the lorry park, just take care if you do go out.
