1. Escape to Pollok Country Park
What is it? A lush green space with the grand old Pollok House at the centre of the grounds.
Why go? This slice of gorgeous countryside is just a rather scenic ten minutes away from Glasgow Central. Once there, get the blood pumping with a stroll through serene surroundings, followed by some cooing over the Highland cows and Clydesdale horses.
Don’t miss: Stop inside Pollok House to see its collections of antique furniture, silverware, ceramics and fine art. Its collection of Spanish paintings is one of the finest in Britain.
