About Paul P
Lives in Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Since Nov 2009
35-49 year old male
I was born in London and moved to Morocco when I was several months old and spent the first few years of my life there. I have lived in France, Italy and spent a lot of time in Spain laterally Málaga in Andalucía almost a year prior to living in Edinburgh; where I have been living since 2000 and truly believe it's one of the most stunning, amazing cities to live in. I am a passionate traveller. I love exploring all parts of the world and enjoy walking round cities, trekking through mountains and have been to some weird and wonderful corners of the globe! My favourite and most visited destinations are Edinburgh, Glasgow, London, Rome Málaga and Seville.
Nature & Wildlife Areas, Parks, Bodies of Water
Ski & Snowboard Areas
Glasgow's largest park is very popular park among runners and anyone else wanting to enjoy the beautiful scenery: gardens, woods, ponds, and even a mansion! This place is a wonderful mix of meticulously-tended shrubs and flowerbeds and shady forest paths that feel anything but urban. And you're sure to spot some of the park's most famous residents: the highland cattle!
At over 80 hectares, Linn Park is Glasgow's second largest. It's a great park with lots of woodland trails and a beautiful waterfall to see, with every season offering something different to enjoy. Sixty species of birds live here, so be on the lookout!
With stunning scenery, abundant wildlife, and opportunities for hiking, cycling, horseback riding, canoeing, fishing, and much more, Loch Lomond is a huge national park with lots to see and do for all ages. A water taxi takes you around to different sections of the park, and serves as yet another way to enjoy the gorgeous views.
Located right in the national park, Loch Lomond Shores is the place for a shopping fix and a relaxing lunch, all the while enjoying an incredible natural backdrop – an alternative way of experiencing the park!
Formerly part of a large estate, Bellahouston is now a beautiful public park with lots of space for walking, running or just relaxing on a bench. It's also home to sports facilities and several cultural buildings, including the contemporary art exhibit centre, The House for an Art Lover. In summer, the park occasionally transforms into a major concert venue for big musical acts.
Right in Bellahouston Park, Glasgow Ski & Snowboard Centre offers an easy way to try out skiing, snowboarding and tubing on dry ski slopes - a great day out!
