OPENING 2014 – BOOK NOW!
THE BATTLE OF BANNOCKBURN
Stirling FK7 0LJ
25 miles/40 km from Glasgow city centre
Prepare for battle!
700 years after King Robert the Bruce’s famous victory in 1314, experience
medieval warfare like never before and discover how the tactics and decisions of
two kings inspired events which defined the Scottish nation.
A major new attraction for group and FIT programmes from 2014, The Battle of
Bannockburn is within easy reach of both Edinburgh and Glasgow, perfect for day
trips and as an exciting start or finish to tours of Scotland.
THE TENEMENT HOUSE
Buccleuch Street, Glasgow G3 6QN
0.6 miles/1 km from Glasgow city centre
As featured in Louis Vuitton City Guide 2013
Enter the home of shorthand typist Miss Agnes Toward, who lived in this first-floor
apartment for over 50 years. This wonderful gas-lit attraction is a veritable time
capsule where visitors can experience firsthand how ordinary Scots lived in early
20th-century Glasgow. Discover how many of the household amenities we take
for granted today were considered luxuries less than a century ago.
WEAVER’S COTTAGE
Kilbarchan, PA10 2JG
14 miles/23 km from Glasgow city centre
Spin, wind and weave!
Built in 1723, the cottage houses the last of 800 handlooms once used in this
traditional weaving village. Watch our weavers spinning, pirn winding and
weaving wool, dyed from natural ingredients found in our cottage garden – then
perhaps have a go yourself! The specially designed Burns family tartan bedspread,
part of the worldwide celebrations to mark Burns’s 250th birthday, was woven
here – the bedspread is currently on display at Burns Cottage in Alloway, part of
Robert Burns Birthplace Museum. In celebration of the 700th anniversary of the
Battle of Bannockburn, the new Battle of Bannockburn tartan was also designed
here, inspired by King Robert the Bruce’s famous victory in 1314.
POLLOK HOUSE
Pollok Country Park, Glasgow G43 1AT
5 miles/8 km from Glasgow city centre
Scotland’s Downton Abbey
This grand country house boasts one of the finest collections of Spanish art in
Britain, with masterpieces by Goya, Murillo and El Greco, including Lady in a Fur
Wrap. Fabulous interiors rich in period furnishings, silverware and ceramics are
complemented externally by elaborate parterre gardens and the beautiful Pollok
Country Park, also home to the Burrell Collection.
HOLMWOOD
61–63 Netherlee Road, Glasgow G44 3YU
6 miles/10 km from Glasgow city centre
From rags to riches!
The Couper family who commissioned the house made their fortune by selling
paper which they made from rags. Completed in 1858, this classically inspired
villa is considered to be Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson’s finest domestic design. See
how the original room decorations, based on themes from the classical world,
are being painstakingly uncovered by our conservation experts. The house, richly
ornamented in wood, plaster and marble, is surrounded by attractive riverside
grounds, including a kitchen garden with Victorian herbs, fruit and vegetables.
GREENBANK GARDEN
Clarkston, Glasgow G76 8RB
10 miles/17 km from Glasgow city centre
A celebration of the gardener’s art
Designed with the domestic gardener in mind and divided into 30 themed living
spaces, this 1 hectare garden boasts over 3,600 named varieties, including
National Collections of Narcissus (over 580 varieties) and Bergenia (over 120
varieties). Even between Christmas and New Year there are 30-40 varieties in
flower. Soaring beech trees, mini-orchards, chattering waters, ornamental pools
and fountains help make this a garden for all seasons.
DAVID LIVINGSTONE CENTRE
165 Station Road, Blantyre G72 9BY
11 miles/18 km from Glasgow city centre
Celebrating 200 years
Discover how Scotland’s most famous explorer, born here in 1813, grew from a
factory boy to become a hero of the Victorian age. Many of Livingstone’s personal
belongings are on display including journals and navigational and medical
equipment. The museum is surrounded by parkland and ancient woodland,
which is now a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Bordered by the River Clyde,
the Explorer’s Garden is a shady oasis that includes the World Fountain designed
by renowned sculptor Pilkington Jackson. The dramatic sculpture of Livingstone
being attacked by a lion is also a must-see!
