A lovely well maintained cemetry. Beautiful views of the area. Looking down over the cruise ship berthed in the Port of Glasgow and across to the hills beyond. All in all, a place to die for!

huge park with lots of different trees (weeping beech etc.) and pathways. Mossy ancient monuments and graves. Wildlife. Famous lover of Robert Burns among graves and monument to James Watt. Try going there when the leaves turn!
