Glasgow Weekend Walks Guidebook

Glasgow Weekend Walks Guidebook

author: Nick Drainey
Few large cities have shown such character and capacity for reinvention as Glasgow. This medieval seat of learning and pilgrimage became the Workshop of the World, famed for its shipbuilding and engineering, before being reborn again as a City of Culture and commerce. The city's evolution, resilience and unique humour are a source of great pride for its citizens. These 25 walks explore the glorious architecture and parks at Glasgow's heart, as well as the best green places and built heritage within an hour's journey.

The book begins with an excellent short introduction to Glasgow today and its history. Each of the walks begins with details of distance, time, terrain, and access to the start.
