  • One of my favourite destinations in Glasgow. Beware there are no streetlights at night time but in my opinion this adds to the charm and magic. Also a lot of famous landmarks here. This is also a great destination for players of Pokemon Go, especially during community days. You can feel a buzz in the air.
  • This spectacular west end garden is one of the most beautiful city centre I have ever visited. The Kibble Palace in particular is worth the trip alone. If you're visiting Glasgow, check it out, you won't be disappointed!!
