Lusset Glen is a very pleasant area with tall mature trees straddling the Dalnottar Burn. It stretches roughly easterly from Dumbarton Road under the railway until reaching Great Western Road. Glen Road is almost parallel with it for the first stretch and can be used as alternative parking to that on Dumbarton Road.
The glen once housed a dam supplying water power to the Dalnottar Iron Works. The Forth and Clyde canal (opened 1790) went through their site and most of the business was transferred to the Duntocher Burn at Milton in Duntocher where there was better water supply. [SG].
