Greenbank House & Garden

East Renfrewshire | Clarkston | Garden | ★★★

[Greenbank Garden]

Just where Glasgow's southern suburbs end and rolling countryside begin, this beautiful walled garden has tranquillity combined with an accessible location that the 18th century tobacco-merchant owner must have loved. Summer is the best time to visit, with sunshine enhancing a kaleidoscopic array of flowering plants, but the various seasonal gardens provide interest year-round. Extensive and full of unexpected, hidden-away corners, the grounds are the main attraction. The house itself (to which there is no regular public access) is smaller than first appearances suggest - watch out for the fake, 2-D wings complete with painted-on windows.
