Giffnock

... welcomes you to The Clyde Valley, Scotland. Enjoy your visit.

 

Giffnock is a town on the outskirts of Glasgow and in the East Renfrewshire area of The Clyde Valley.

Giffnock is home to a Victorian mansion, Eastwood House which is located in the grounds of Eastwood Park and was once home to Viscount Weir, who was host to royalty, prime ministers and foreign leaders. Today the mansion is a cultural and recreational venue.

Not far off is another park, Rouken Glen Park, which is one of the largest public parks in Scotland. The park has a cross-section of land, from trim grass and trees to a Highland Glen with crags and cliffs, as well as a boating pond. The park also houses The Gatehouse Gallery, which has exhibitions of painting and craftwork, and to Eastwood Butterfly Kingdom which is sadly no longer open. The latter formerly housed an array of butterflies and moths from all around the world which can be found in an indoor tropical garden.
