We found this place so beautiful and presented. There small areas for children. Burrell collections were closed for repairs. So we have to visit again.

This is a great wee walk, good scenery and is lovely through the summer time, pollen counts can get quite high though, but is a nice little walking day out.

We had been swayed by the photos of the ornate ceilings on the website - but that was really the only ceiling of any interest. The house is moderately interesting, but not particularly exciting. If you plan to travel to Pollock House by train, it...More

Love to walk the dog here, great open spaces and wooded areas for the pooch to explore, downside toilets need updating and could only find 1 toilet block in the whole park! Bring your own water for dogs as nowhere for a pooch watering hole!

This park is beautiful. Nice place to hang out for the day. Lovely walking trails, and a herd of fuzzy highland coos!! Easy 5 min walk from the Pollokshaws west train station.

What a lovely tranquil park, lovely walks, lots of historical houses and places in the park. Brilliant playpark fenced off so ideal for wee people. Would have given 5 stars but lack of toilets at playpark was an issue for wee people
