Beyond the city you’ll find many special outdoor spaces, but you can also find an extraordinary variety of parks and gardens in the city of Glasgow, which translates from Gaelic as the ‘dear green place’.

One of Glasgow’s best-loved parks, Kelvingrove enjoys a fine setting on the banks of the River Kelvin and defines the centre of the city’s bohemian West End. Glasgow Green is the city’s oldest park and its history can be traced back to 1450.

Queen’s Park in Glasgow offers stunning views on a clear day out to the Campsie Fells and Ben Lomond. It was also the site of the 16th century Battle of Langside.

Milngavie’s Mugdock Country Park has some great short walks, two ruined castles and a host of activities from horse riding and orienteering through to archery and golf.

Hire equipment and head out onto the open water sailing or kayaking at Clyde Muirshiel, Scotland’s largest regional park.
