Dear Green Place
Glasgow is a lively and cosmopolitan city, making a name as a vibrant center of 21st century design, set against a background of exceptional Victorian architecture.
The city’s evolution is ongoing, as state-of-the-art glass towers sprout up to house a growing financial services industry. The real Glasgow can be found in the pubs, where lively discussions about everything from the weather to solving the world’s problems are had over a pint or two.
Visitors are welcome, so do join in. And take note: no trip to Scotland is complete without sampling ‘the water of life'” – a wee dram of Scotch whisky.
Set on historic Glasgow Green, the People’s Palace uncovers the history of Glasgow and its people through artifacts, paintings, photographs, and interactive displays. Explore the palace and the beautiful Winter Gardens and the Doulton Fountain.
Visit this magnificent medieval building, said to have been built on St. Kentigern’s tomb. Admire carved stone bosses on the ceiling and one of the finest post-war collections of stained glass windows in Britain.
Perched on the Ayrshire coast, Culzean Castle is one of the National Trust for Scotland's most treasured properties. An ordinary fortified tower house was converted into this elegant residence featuring a 'Roman' viaduct and Ruined Arch to add drama in its spectacular clifftop setting. Culzean was also Scotland's first country park; consisting of 563 acres, it contains a wealth of natural and historical interest.About Land Discoveries + Book Now +
