‘Round Ma Bit – The Gallowgate Twins’ Film (2013)


The Whitevale and Bluevale Towers, otherwise known as the Gallowgate Twins, are the tallest buildings in Scotland. Hundreds of people once called them home. Due to years of neglect, they are no longer fit for human habitation, are now almost completely empty, and have been scheduled for demolition.

We climbed to the top of the towers to meet one of the last remaining residents still living in the flats. From this height you get a clear view of the history of this part of Glasgow and the direction the city is moving in.
