  • Love this place. Frozen in time. Great day for the whole family to enjoy. Educational for younger children with a vision into the past. 
  • This House was built in the year 1752 and was one of the four residences of the Maxwell. The Pollok House is two-story but the second plant is closed for renovation, the House is fully furnished with a stylish selection of furniture and Spanish art works has paintings by El Greco, Goya or Murillo. In the lower part of the House you can see work the servants of a House of the time. The House is in restoration and some works are stored for example "Lady with an ermine" that believed a piece of "El Greco" or of the Renaissance painter "Sofonisba Anguissola" (not this light), this work is not exhibited in the Museum at the moment but worth a visit yet. The entrance is free because is in restoration and missing works but are £6 pounds or £5 to children and students. The promenade in Pollock Country Park is also very interesting since in addition to the landscape there are Highland Cows (Scottish cows) graze. I really liked. 100% recomenable

  • Easily accessible with a short train ride from central station Glasgow and then you almost instantly a huge park in. The House is still and walk. Many Spanish paintings in the old kitchen, large garden and a small cafeteria with terrace. All in all a nice trip for a sunny afternoon from Glasgow.

  • Getting refurbished atm but still the gardens are so tranquil and nice
  • Don't miss the awesome old beech tree just a short walk east of the house.
  • Your out in the country in the middle of a city, Fantastic.
