The Hampden Trail


The Hampden Trail is a stroll, a ramble, a drive, a journey that takes you through one of the two heartlands of early, Scottish and therefore global football. The other is West Dunbartonshire. 

There are five points into the trail, two in the north via Glasgow Central Station to Queen's Park and/or Crosshill over-land stations and three in the south from Kings Park, Cathcart and/or Muirend. You and your stamina make the choice. And it will take you from 1867 to the present via one Queen's Park, a 3rd Lanark, two Cathkins and three, even four Hampden Parks, to Scottish National Football Museum, the first in Europe, Cathcart Cemetery, the last resting-place of a plethora of players, football pioneers and administrators, the home of the Maleys and birthplace childhood of Uruguay's "El Yoni", John Harley.
