It is rich in history and a familiar landmark on the southern skyline reaching 200 metres above sea level, the highest point in Glasgow.

The park is renowned for panoramic views over the city and beyond including the Gleniffer Braes and the Kilpatrick and Campsie ranges. On a clear day many familiar mountain peaks can be seen.

The natural environment of the park with abundant informal paths, ancient woodland, grassland, heath and scrub is ideal for walking, picnics, informal recreation and environmental study.

If venturing onto the less formal paths, it is advisable to wear stout footwear and warm clothing as conditions can change on exposed slopes. As with all remote areas, a mobile phone can be useful in case of emergency.
