Pollock House (auch Pollok House) ist ein Herrenhaus in Schottland und liegt im Pollok Country Park südlich des Glasgower Stadtzentrums. Es wurde 1752 von William Adam gestaltet und enthält eine Sammlung spanischer Malerei, u. a. Gemälde von El Greco, Goya, Murillo sowie kostbare Antiquitäten.
Great Park for a beautiful walk or visit Pollok house for a look at some history and lovely art. Stop in at the shop if you are looking for a gift and the cafe for good food. There is also a large play park for children from toddler to young teenager. There is a great Hill for kite flying if the wind is in the right direction or just for rolling down. And don't forget to have a look at the horses in the stables and the Highland cattle in the field.
Pollok Country Park is only 3 miles from city of Glasgow. It is a fantastic place to spend the day for all age groups Historic buildings. The Burrell collection Highland cattle Riverside picnic area.coffee shop. Restaurants Old settlement of some if the first inhabitants in Glasgow going back hundreds of years Pollok house. Wildlife including deer. sparrow hawk's sheep .cows rabbits grouse . Play area for kids . Forest walks ..the list is endless ...
Cracking well maintained park for all .. Will expand here .. Memories a plenty. Visit & see .. Any questions ask away! Great for walks in the mud & leaves, feeding the ducks, seeing the horses & cattle while having a picnic. Lots benches to sit on facing gorgeous views.
Lovely big park, close enough to city centre but not too close. Lots of paths and wooded areas. Pollok house good for stroll through. Cafes and restaurants available too. Burrell Collection closed just now for multimillion renovations. Why aren't modern public buildings waterproof!
A beautiful oasis of calm and beauty in the middle of the urban South Side of Glasgow. Wonderful and varied walks and tracks along side river through woodland across meadows and around ponds. Teaming with wildlife, and that's not just the Glasgow folk.
In the rain this place is still very aesthetically pleasing but the paths are difficult to walk especially those that are not paved. Unfortunately nothing was really open when I was there but the ground were lovely especially the gardens around the country house. This is a dog walkers paradise and all the dogs I saw were enjoying themselves a lot, even if their owners weren't. For Pokemon Go players there are plenty of stops and gyms to get stuck into. The car park when I went was not very busy but I can't imagine that would be the same during the busy summer period, that's the riverside car park next to the house.
National Trust good, though house has historic damp problems. Garden fantastic. Easter egg hunt for children well organised. Parking was the biggest problem, not well signed to get from main car park into overflow parking. Scottish weather wonderful for one day!
This park in my opinion is the cleanest park in Glasgow it has park rangers which work on the park all the time there isn't any trouble in the park or kids causing problems. It has a big pond aswel for if your interested in feeding the ducks and it has a cafe right beside the pond for if your hungry after walking round the park. I went to this park as a kid with my friends till I moved house but still have amazing memories here 🤔
Had a lovely walk through the park, and found it amazing how much it felt in the countryside whilst just a bus ride from Glasgow. Blessed with good weather we stumbled across horses and beautiful views in a very green, lush Park. Unfortunately the Collection was closed the day we went, but the park more than made up for it.
This park is great- so much to see and do. The fairy garden is brilliant. It really sparks the imagination. My daughter was super excited when walking through it. The arts and crafts area was also a nice touch- especially with the weather being so wet during the Easter holidays.
Good for a walk, good play park, big Clydesdale horse's, Highland coos with £1 all day parking. Wee duck pond. Lovely place to visit. Right next to a police depot so suppose the unsavory character avoid. Police always stop and wave to kids which is so lovely. My boy always waves to all police now wherever we are
I took the train from Glasgow Central to Pollokshaws West on the East Kilbride line. Just along to the left is the entrance to the park and although the Burrell centre is closed due to refurbishment I walked along to Pollok house passing quiet fields with Aberdeen Angus cattle grazing. The house itself has a good history and currently until later in year 2018 has an exhibition of photographs by Scotland's most famous photographer Harry Benson which is worth seeing as you tour the house. There are pleasant grounds, gardens and a river flowing through.
Great big park. If you like more of an open field walk it's or if you prefer going through the woodlands there's paths for any walk you want. They have horses to see and Highland cows, plus a big play park and cafe to enjoy.

Pollok House is worth a visit & the surrounding gardens & buildings a must. Nature walks, little people land as my granddaughter calls it is a must see for the kids. Cafe/Bar situated at house with toilet facilities. Plenty of walks and things to see everywhere x
Pollock house and gardens is such a beautiful, pleasant and peaceful place. Of course, this is National Trust site so was really well maintained, clean and looked after. We had originally planned to see the gardens, the house, the galleries and a special visit to see the Highland coos in one trip, but ended up deciding to split it up over several visits. This change in plan came about due to the remarkable weather, and quite stunning gardens and woodlands. You almost felt like child again, exploring nooks and crannies, discovering secret dens and door ways. Everything was so well maintained and looked after, we walked around for a good couple of hours. The wee cafe is also fascinating with its old world look and feel, the staff were so pleasant and happy and the food on offer was exactly what you'd hope and want from this sort of place. I had a top notch ploughmans lunch, and my wife had a filling brie and bacon seeded roll. We went to see the cows too... (this was my favourite bit... I swear to god, someone brushes their fringes in the morning). Well the outside was enough to fill our day, especially with a little sun bathing under a tree by the river and cant wait to return to see the galleries and inside Pollock House itself.
It's a great huge country park just a couple of minutes walk on the left hand side from Pollokshaws West train station. The Burrell Collection is located inside although it was closed for renovation when I went there. It's very scenic and it's great for walking, playing, cycling, golfing and so much more. I would recommend taking your own picnic unless you don't mind paying the slightly expensive prices for food and drink. Just please remember to take your litter with you as there was a few bits where people hadn't.
Great park! Being the biggest park in the city there's plenty of things to see and loads of space for dog walkers, cyclists, people looking to play footy or cricket etc. Plenty of wildlife roaming around, deer and squirrels aplenty then there's the horses and highland cattle. Lovely well kept gardens too.
It is such a gorgeous location not far from the city centre and plenty of places to go exploring. Feel like you could go here time and time again and always find something new. Plus the highland cattle are adorable!
Entry to the house is for national trust members, I don't know the cost. Otherwise it's free. Currently the burrell collection is closed & has been since 2016 for renovation work think it reopens 2020. The stables are also no longer used which is a huge pity as they are impressive & was a good place to see the 4 horses. The grounds seem to be in a state of disrepair I don't know why as you can see a lot of effort had previously gone into them especially the vegetable garden. The main draw......HIGHLAND cows you can get close enough to touch them
A very nice park especially if you want to go for long walks or running. We did BBQ here twice this year and kids loved it. An amazing place for family picnic when sunny.
