The Best Parks to Visit in Glasgow

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.

A Complete Guide to Football in Glasgow

Ibrox Football

Glasgow is home to one of the fiercest football (or soccer)  rivalries in the world: The Old Firm. With attendances averaging 50,000 at each home match, Rangers and Celtic are two of Glasgow’s most celebrated clubs in the UK. Unfortunately getting to see them play each other is virtually impossible unless you have a season ticket or know someone closely involved with either team.

Segwaying around Blair Atholl

Blair Atholl Segway

As part of a hen weekend away in Blair Atholl and Pitlochry, I finally got to do something I had always dreamed but never knew was accessible to general public folk like me. That thing was Segwaying. 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*.
