    Passed by here when I was in a hurry and didn't get more than a glimpse, a quick note of the street name and 2 minutes on google suggests it's a former primary school.

    It doesn't look like much from the outside, and it looks pretty tight to me, but it's an old building and I'm sure someone could find a way in to see what it offers, either architecturally or forgotten items.

    From the streetview images it's easy to make out the cathcart parish school board sign.

    This evening times link suggests it closed in 2005 as a new school was built http://cathcart.eveningtimes.co.uk/news/former-holmlea-primary-site.html

    Might be of use to someone who wants a quick look.

    Now that is what you call comprehensively sealed!

    This is Glasgow - they do that to all the schools, otherwise they go up in smoke in 5 minutes flat.

    Anyhow, the school isn't the most interesting place in the immediate area...
