  • I took my 4 year old son and we both had a fantastic time. The staff are lovely and the house is stunning but for us it was the garden that stood out the most. Absolutely stunning!!
  • Brilliant place. A good day out. The cafe is variable. £8.50 for a croque monsieur which was actually a toasted ham and cheese sandwich on cheap white bread. Definitely not worth the money.
  • wonderful house and amazing grounds .the site said about norm half hour stay or so was there for more than two hours. The great weather helped tho .
  • Fantastic day out. Christmas time is especially magical here
  • Lots of fun things to do and very beautiful

Where to stay in Glasgow

Glasgow's revitalized city center offers outstanding accommodations--along with some of the finest shopping outside London. Considered one of the finest Victorian cities in Britain, Glasgow is renowned for its centrally located hotels. Spacious rooms overlook the historical city center, and award-winning restaurants and trendy cafes occupy the lower levels. Farther away from the central areas, which are often noisy and crowded with tourists, is a world of small B&Bs and guesthouses. These considerably cheaper options offer quality lodging in quiet neighborhoods less frequented by weekend revelers and rowdy nightlife lovers.
