McLennan Arch, Glasgow Green

Glasgow Green is one of the biggest public parks near the city centre, as well as being the oldest in the city!

However, it is also known for its beautiful entrance which offers a fantastic chance to show off your Instagram skills.

The arch is a stand alone piece of classical architecture and often represents the finish line during the annual Great Scottish Run.

Glasgow Botanic Gardens

Glasgow Botanic Gardens is another blogger’s paradise for those living in the West End.

On a hot summer’s day, you could spend the whole day exploring the springtime flower beds and (when restrictions ease) take a walk inside the Kibble Palace glasshouse.

There are plenty of pop-up coffee shops and public toilets nearby for local residents. The park shuts as soon as it gets dark, so make sure you don’t go during the evenings!

The Botanics also hosts its annual GlasGlow light show during the festive season.
