    Hi I have the same question about my ancestors. Did you find out the answer?

      Have a look at sister site Bygone Bungo, e.g. https://bygone.bungoblog.com/wp/early-strathbungo-village/
      The “lands” were typically the old two storey houses/workplaces at the centre of old Strathbungo village, though I can’t advise specifically about Gordon’s Land. Workers were often coal miners or weavers, though depends on the period. The lands were being replaced by the current tenements by the 1880s.
