In this tranquil woodland you will find many different types of trees, look for native Scottish species like red-berried rowan and hawthorn. It’s a wonderful wood to visits for a picnic, stroll or cycle any time of the year. Enjoy dramatic views over the city and glimpses of wildlife amongst the trees and in the meadows.

The two woods at Garscadden are a Local Nature Reserve – one of Scotland’s special places to enjoy and learn more about local wildlife. Garscadden Wood is important because it’s one of the oldest semi-natural woods in Glasgow, and one of only two woods in the city where you can find the purple hairstreak butterfly.
