Milton, West Dunbartonshire


Milton, West Dunbartonshire

Milton (historically, Milton of Colquhoun) is a village in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland.

It lies about 1 mile east of Dumbarton, on the A82 Glasgow-Loch Lomond road and below the Overtoun Bridge.

It previously had two primary schools, now closed, one on the long road up to Overtoun house and one on the main stretch of road to Glasgow. It is unknown when this second school (on the route to Overtoun) was in use or when it closed, though this was presumably in the late 19th century or early 20th century, as it is quite an old building and matches this period. Milton also has an SSPCA animal rescue centre. It also includes Dumbuck Quarry, which has removed a large part of Dumbuck hill.

Its main claim to fame is that it was the home of Jackie Stewart, the racing driver. His family ran the Dumbuck Garage in the village. Another native is Ian Napier, the fighter ace.[1]
