Carnwadric, Glasgow City

Carnwadric is an area of Glasgow, Scotland. It is situated south of the River Clyde. Carnwadric was a farm owned by Sir John Maxwell, one of approximately seven such large holdings owned by him and rented to others. The land was formerly owned by the Stuart kings and queens of Scotland. During ancient post-Roman times, it was sought after by the Scots of Dál Riata and Angles of Northumbria. It formed part of the ancient Kingdom of Strathclyde, a Brittonic, rather than Gaelic, kingdom.
