Park
“My favorite park in Glasgow! It has everything you could need - a beautiful river running through it (with a resident Kingfisher!), a number of different trails depending on what you fancy (sturdy paths/forest walks/nature trails), play park, golf course and graveyard! Beautiful at any time of year.”

Point of Interest
“This is a little further away, 15 minutes' walk, but worth every step, a fantastic family-run Italian-Scottish restaurant with the best host in town, Enzo.”

Park
“The Braes” includes miles of area to go for a lovely walk and even catch a waterfall. Robertson Car Park (or Car Park in the Sky) is the highlight with panoramic views spanning from Ben Lomond, across Paisley, all the way over to a large proportion of Glasgow. Hours can pass watching the sun drift away, and planes departing Glasgow airport. If you have time during the day and a car to get there, I recommend a visit.”
