Witness historic Scottish football rivalry
No matter what you might be into, Glasgow has something in it for everyone. From the Kelvingrove Art Gallery filled with civic art, to the two famous stadiums of Ibrox and Celtic Park and even the Tennent’s Wellpark Brewery – the centre of Glasgow is always bustling with life. A rental car is the best way to get around the city quickly, and it also helps you get to the beautiful parks within Glasgow’s boundaries. Drive down to southern Glasgow to the Pollok Country Park to visit the elegant Edwardian Pollok House and its beautiful gardens. If you are in the north part of the city, head out to the Seven Lochs Wetland Park close to our branch in Springburn.
Hike through the rolling hills of the Trossachs
By hiring a car in Glasgow, you are also a short journey away by some of the most beautiful landscapes in the south and west of Scotland. Drive north of the city on the A82 road to get to the stunning Loch Lomond and see the rolling hills of the Trossachs National Park. Carry on travelling up the road and you will reach the magical Glencoe valley – a place known for its numerous babbling brooks, cascading waterfalls and walking trails. From Glencoe, you can also travel on to get to the highest peak of Britain - the famed Ben Nevis. When returning from your trip to Glencoe, why not take a detour through Stirling and visit Doune Castle. It’s a medieval castle used as a filming location for Monty Python and the Holy Grail and you can even take a tour narrated by Terry Jones himself.
Enjoy the Scottish sea breeze in Ayrshire
If you prefer to see the Scottish coast, why not take the southbound M77 towards Ayrshire? You can visit the town of Ayr and head towards Culzean Castle – a medieval mansion with a wonderful walled garden. When returning, take the scenic A719 route and witness the optical illusion of the Electric Brae, where cars seem to be freewheeling uphill due to the surrounding land. Glasgow is a fantastic place for a city break, but the surrounding areas reachable by car also have plenty to offer. Create everlasting memories by experiencing all of this in an Enterprise rental.
