Glasgow Walks to Crookston Castle
Crookston Castle Rocks!
There are parts of Glasgow many local folk don't know about and Crookston is one of them. Considered to be a far flung part of the west of the city, many Glaswegians don't give it a second thought. What they don't realise is that there is a fantastic piece of Glasgow history - Crookston Castle - waiting for them, for free nonetheless.
Crookston Castle really amazed our students this week, not least of all because of the awesome sunny weather which meant a great deal of sun bathing was done - something rather alien to them in their time in the city so far.
Rosshall Park and Gardens nearby also offered a haven from the city centre. Lazing next to the pond and it's resident heron everyone pretty much chilled the afternoon away.
It's a real shame more people don't visit these great places. Perhaps Glasgow would have a better name than Edinburgh if they did!
