Great walks for the whole family. I try to go every time I visit, but Glasgow does have lots of parks to chose from.

The Burrell is currently undergoing renovation and improvement and is closed, but a very small part of the collection is available for viewing in a gallery on the first floor of the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The Burrell gift shop is also there.

We are sorry this Burrell is closed for so long. We enjoyed our lunch there - having seen round the whole place before, we purchased some items from the shop on our way out.

Love the Burrell Collection and surrounding country park as it offers a unique display that you can't get anywhere else in Glasgow. Unfortunately closed unti 2020 for refurbishments but well worth a visit when it re-opens.
