Historic Douglas Support Estate Community buy-out planned

Viewpark Conservation Group (VCG) wishes to acquire the Historic Douglas Support Estate, locally known as The Viewpark Glen through a Community buy-out. 


The Douglas Support Estate was in the ownership of the Douglas family for many generations, and forms part of the old Douglas lands of Lanarkshire. The current owners are descendants of the Douglas family, but are no longer Douglases.


The local community wishes to acquire the land to create a 'green lung' to protect themselves from the polluting motorways that encircle the community.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
