Kirkintilloch or Kirkie as it's know by the locals is a wee town 7 miles North east of Glasgow situated in East Dumbartonshire.
Kirky was home to the famous Red telephone boxes which were produce in the Kirky Iron Foundry.

It has a population of just over 20,000 and is the Canal Capital of Scotland, though locals often joke it is ''the Charity shop Capital of Scotland'' due to how many Charity shops can be found on the high street.
