Built as part of the Great Exhibition of 1888, Kelvingrove park, including the art galleries and museum is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Scotland. A stunning haven of peace, tranquility and learning in a busy city. Something for everyone.

I think it's one of the most beautiful parks I've seen! Green and lush, with those cute squirrels running to and fro. A must!
