Lena Points #21: Carmunnock Village Green

The Edge of Glasgow

It's been a while since Student Tours Scotland caught up with Lena and her magical pointing skills. Here she is pointing in the village at the edge of the modern Glasgow boundary - Carmunnock. This area of Glasgow is pretty special. It's a Conservation Area so you can't just build there for the fun of it. There are special rules in place. This means the area has a great wee feel to it. There are lots of old houses and it's much quieter than the City Centre and some of the other areas in Glasgow. The Village Greens (Lena is pointing at the Low Green here) are amongst the oldest parks in Glasgow. This tranquil little spot is great for reading, thinking or just gaining some peace in an otherwise busy city. I love Carmunnock - and you should too!
