“Really interesting”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

We went later in the day and didn't get to spend as much time as we would have liked. Definitely plan to come early and wander around for a while. Some great views at the top of the cathedral across the street.

“Very interesting snapshot of the who's who of Victorian Glasgow”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Worth the walk, a regular stop on the hop on bus. A vast hill top Victorian cemetery, elaborate headstones and crypts.

“huge!!”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

this was not as interesting as i thought, its in a housing estate and depsite the reviews saying there are tours around it there was nobody around apart from a few mourners, there is seggregated areas for jewish buriels but other than that the thing that struck me most was the sheer size of the place. Glad I went but not sure i would go again
