Glasgow is often advertised as a vibrant city that is steeped in history, offering up great bars, restaurants and shopping opportunities. But everyone seems to forget about the good ol’ greenery that Glasgow has to offer. As I mentioned in my post about London, one of my favourite things to do when visiting a city is to people watch in the park. So if you’re visiting Glasgow, or live here and are looking for somewhere else to go on those (often sparse) super hot days, here’s a breakdown of Glasgow’s best parks.
The Duck & Dog Show at Aberfoyle
After visiting Go Ape a few few weeks ago, we never really got a chance to see the rest of Aberfoyle because we were busy swing from the trees for 3 hours. We thought since we were free last Sunday that it would be a great opportunity to make the drive back up and take a wander around the main street and surrounding areas to see what there was to do and see.
Swinging from the Trees at Go Ape!
Last weekend Jamie and I headed up to Aberfoyle for a day swinging from the trees at Go Ape. The only way that I can describe Go Ape is that it is a tree-top adventure obstacle course that really gets every part of your body working and really pushes the boundaries of what you thought your limitations were. We had always wanted to go here but with life getting in the way it was just something another thing that we had forgotten to do this summer.

I don’t mean these little boards that spoiled rich kids on YouTube are scooting around on, no I mean the big chunky two-wheeled vehicles with handles for stability. And yes the ones that DON’T catch fire after a few uses *ahem*.
A Guide to Cycling & Bike Hire in Millport
I’ve put together this quick guide to help you plan and prepare cycling and bike hire in Millport. The route around the island is fairly flat and has a very scenic path, so it can make a great day out for keen cyclists or family/friends who just want to get active during their spare time.
The People’s Palace & Winter Gardens, Glasgow
Another beautiful spring day meant I was dying to get out and about for a walk. We went out for a family lunch at Auld Raes in East Kilbride before taking a casual wander around the Winter Gardens in Glasgow Green. I had been in here before but only saw part of it as there was a wedding on and the middle section was closed off.
The Best View of Glasgow
With Glasgow showing signs of spring (and patches of winter) we decided to make the most of the sunshine and calm weather. I love going on little spontaneous adventures or road trips, even if we don’t get out the car, I just love seeing new things. I hate sitting in the house. So after running some errands, I did what I usually do when I don’t want to go home; this is how the conversation goes:
