Duntocher, West Dunbartonshire

Duntocher is a village in Dunbartonshire, Scotland. Although it is a far older settlement and still considered a village in its own right, it is administratively part of nearby Clydebank along with the neighbouring village of Hardgate and is now part of the West Dunbartonshire local authority area. The village expanded due to housebuilding by Clydebank town council after the Second World War, and later by the Wimpey firm in the late 1960s and early 1970s on what had been green belt land.
