Alternatively, drive south for 20 minutes and you will get to Pollok Country Park and the Burrell Collection, which includes paintings by Edgar Degas. The museum is surrounded by woodland, so take a stroll through the wildlife garden before you leave.
A taste of the Highlands
You don’t have to drive far from Glasgow to discover the misty lochs and heather-flecked hillsides of the legendary Scottish Highlands.
Beautiful Loch Lomond is just a 40-minute drive from central Glasgow up the A82, a road that ultimately leads to some of Britain’s most magnificent scenery.
Drive as far as you can along the quieter eastern shore until the road runs out, park up and enjoy woodland walks with views across the loch for miles. You might even spot local residents such as deer, otters and golden eagles.
