 Description
"The level of home-ownership in Cathcart is the highest in the city yet there are also some vast council estates here. The once notorious Castlemilk housing scheme is within the constituency, along with solid working class areas such as Carnwadric and Kennishead. The Victoria Infirmary which has been at the centre of claims of negligence is also in this seat. The seat stretches south from the centre of the city to the southern outskirts and also includes some plush leafy areas around Hampden Park, the home of Scottish football.
