Description
Clydebank is one of the most famous names associated with shipbuilding, but now its name has become synonymous with the seemingly terminal decline of that industry in this country.

The industrial base in the region now has diversified, and although engineering remains, new hi-tech and service industries have become established thanks largely to Clydebank having one of the first of Britain's enterprise zones.

Milngavie, on the other hand, is very different. Best described as leafy, middle-class suburbia, it has become a desirable residential area for Glasgow commuters.

It has a little light industry, but few of the council estates that typify residential parts of Clydebank.

Many people visit Milngavie ever year either to start or finish the West Highland Way.

The popular walking route stretches from the a granite obelisk in Milngavieís town centre, up Scotlandís west coast, around Loch Lomond and to the foot of Ben Nevis in the Scottish Highlands.

This seat was created in February 1974 and Labour has managed to hold it ever since.
