Walking next to Kelvin River is a must do in this city. Maybe the most beautiful activity of Glasgow. Do not miss it

Stumbled across this park by accident while taking an evening walk near our hotel, and were amazed at the size and grandeur of it!

A very welcoming park that is well maintained. The River Kelvin meanders through the park making it even more lovely. Peace solitude. Great.

I was approached then followed by 5 +separate men on my way over to finnieston. It's a Gay cruising hot spot. Must of been my Rugby top and fine... More
