Where We Live
Our home is in Dumbarton, Scotland. Dumbarton is a town about 14 miles north-west of Glasgow. It has a population of around 28,000. Until recently there was a thriving Scotch Whisky industry here but that is now almost gone except for a bottling plant. We still enjoy sampling that drink though! This area now has mostly light industry and there is much employment at the Faslane Submarine Base. Also employment in the service and tourist industries.
We are very lucky with the beauty of the surrounding countryside. Loch Lomond is only ten minutes away by car and with the Lomond Shores visitors centre at the head of the Loch many more are visiting the area, making tourism a very important part of the local economy..
The house that we live in is our own. It's a three bedroomed villa although the smallest bedroom (and it is very small) is in fact our "studio". This is the room in which we spend a great deal of our time and it contains computing equipment and recording gear for a local Talking Newspaper Headline Helensburgh, as well as the place where we make up our Web Site.
