Choose to visit Glasgow and the Clyde Valley for a memorable trip away. Glasgow is the second largest city in the centre of Scotland with a fascinating heritage, making it one of the top places to visit in Scotland and the UK. The region is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – The Antonine Wall and New Lanark. The Antonine Wall was built in AD 140 and was once the north western frontier of the Roman Empire.
New Lanark is a village that was founded in the 18th century and led by the social pioneer Robert Owen. Glasgow and the Clyde Valley has a variety of attractions from world class galleries such as Kelvingrove Art and Museum, the historic King’s Theatre Glasgow and the state of the art Scottish Exhibition Centre.
If you want to head outdoors there are plenty of opportunities for you to explore the countryside and surrounding areas. A popular place for families to visit is Clyde Muirshiel, Scotland’s largest regional park. Clyde Muirshiel has various outdoor and watersports activities for all the families, such as sailing, powerboating, cycling and walking.
For those seeking the incredible wildlife native to Scotland, a visit to RSPB Nature Reserve at Lochwinnoch is a must. As one of the last remaining wetlands in West Scotland it makes for an enjoyable day out.
