Glasgow's impressive Botanic Gardens are renowned for their well stocked and tended glasshouses and their extensive tropical and temperate plant collections. The flora comes from all over the world and the setting is lovely too, as you can set off for a walk along Glasgow’s other river, the Kelvin. Two of the highlights are the manicured formal gardens and the arboretum. Perhaps even more impressive has been the restoration of the steel and glass Kibble Palace, which was dismantled and painstakingly brought back to its best a few years back.
