Bellahouston Park

[Walled garden, Bellahouston Park]

Close to the wealthy Glaswegian suburb of Dumbreck, Bellahouston Park is well known for its music events. Even when it's not rocking it's well worth exploring. A low hill marks the geographical centre of the park, but the most interesting stuff is on the north-west side: a beautiful Victorian walled garden, a collection of dry ski slopes, a run-down maze and a small heritage centre (covered separately). And of course the resplendent House for an Art Lover, which also gets its own page. The rest of the park includes a pitch and putt course, large sports centre, a slightly weird sunken garden and miles of paths.
