6 Beautiful Family Walks Around Glasgow

Here are a couple of lovely places around Glasgow for a wander with the family. Places to enjoy nature and the outdoors. See a waterfall here and there, a wee highland cow or two…

Sunday Strolls: Alva Glen

Nestled within the Ochil Hills, Alva Glen in Stirlingshire is an ideal wee nook for a scenic Sunday stroll.

Robertson Park, Renfrew

Robertson Park is a great little park to spend a few hours. The playpark is varied, the skate park is good, there’s open space for running around. Plus there’s a cute wee pond with swans and ducks.

Family friendly hill walks near Glasgow

A list of hill walks within driving distance of Glasgow, all suitable for little legs. Some higher ascents, some longer distances, some easier & some a bit more tricky.

Gleniffer Braes Country Park

Gleniffer Braes is a huge park with swathes of open space to explore. It’s so near the city, but it also feels like you’re miles away. With waterfalls, loads of walks, cattle and play areas it’s great day out!

The Burrell Collection

A lovely guest review of the Burrell Collection by a lovely mummy friend and her toddler who went along for a visit recently. Thanks A! It was a rainy Sunday afternoon, so we decided to go to the Burrell Collection with our 2 year old. I had been previously and thought she might like the …

Glasgow’s One Hundred and Something Parks

I needed some motivation to get us spending time outside, so a few weeks ago I decided I was going to try to visit every park in Glasgow over the next few months. And I made a big list of every park in Glasgow!

Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum

We love a little trip into Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum for a few hours. It’s a huge space for the little ones to play in and a great place to meet up with a bunch of buggies. If you manage to read anything, that’s always a bonus!

Mount Vernon Gruffalo Trail

A hidden gem in the east end. Gruffalo trail, wooden play areas including a train station and wee adventure play area.

Cuningar Loop

Cuningar Loop is a really pretty park, and will be even prettier as it continues to grow. The whole place is one big adventure, and there is tons to do. My kids adore it here. It’s well worth a visit!

Dawsholm Park

We have just started coming back to Dawsholm Park in the past weeks as lockdown has eased a bit, and we all absolutely love this park. It has open meadow spaces, massive trees, a bit of river to splash in and lots of little hidden bits to explore. It’s such an underrated park and the kids really feel like they’re on an adventure here. Great fun.

Until: The New Installation At Tramway

This latest installation at Tramway is truly fantastic. It’s a full on sensory experience; for everyone. Just be aware with young kids that it’s no touching!

Lamont Farm Project

Lamont Farm Project is very small and very rustic, but it’s a great place to spend an hour wandering round and seeing some cute animals. The little man really enjoyed it here, patting the friendly cat and the rabbits. Sweet little place.

Reidvale Adventure Play Area (RAPA)

Reidvale Adventure Play Area is a really wonderful wee community driven place right in the heart of Dennistoun. There’s so much for kids to do and loads of space for them to just play and be kids.

Fullarton Fairy Trail

The Fullarton Fairy Trail is a really sweet little activity. There are fairy doors to fin, a nice playpark at the end and Troon Beach is only a 5 minute drive away. A lovely wee afternoon out, and it’s totally free!

Boden Boo

Boden Boo is a nice spot for a picnic by the water. It’s pretty clean and we all had a great time splashing at the edge of the water and playing in the sand. And it was only a 17 minute drive home!

Troon Beach

Troon Beach is a beautiful place, particularly when the sun is shining. But even when it’s not, there’s an ocean to splash in and all you need is a bucket and spade (and a watering can) and a picnic. Great fun.

Baltic Street Adventure Playground

Baltic Street Adventure Playground is different to any other play area we’ve been to. There’s loads for them to climb and swing on and jump off and play with. It’s fun, it’s exciting; it’s risky play at its very best. And it’s completely free.
