Gallowhill house

Gallowhill is a housing estate in the north east of Paisley, Scotland. It was built during the 1930s and added to in the 40s and again in the 70s and is located across the M8 from the town of Renfrew, east of St James and north of Whitehaugh. Arkleston Farm makes up the estate's eastern border. The most common form of housing are cottage flats and two storey tenements, although there are some three storey units and terraced housing as well as three tower blocks. In general, housing is very similar to Ferguslie Park in the north west of the town. However, while its sister scheme has been crippled by social problems and seen much of its housing demolished, Gallowhill's housing stock remains almost unchanged since the 1970s, although it does have a high crime rate, with gangs, knives and even guns prevalent in the community.
