Inn Deep Pub, Kelvinbridge, Glasgow, Scotland

Today, benefiting from glorious, sunny weather, I joined  a small walking group which progressed as follows:

  • Met Hillhead Subway and progressed down Byres Road, across the River Kelvin and viewed the impressive Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Musuem.
  • Into Kelvingrove Park, designed by Sir Joseph Paxton.
  • Past a play area and skatepark to visit the Stewart Memorial Fountain which commemorates the introduction of a public water supply, from Loch Katrine.
  • Next past a statue of tiger and cubs to the equestrian statue of Field Marshall Earl Roberts who was killed in 1914.
  • Next, down to the River Kelvin and then on to a bar where we availed of lunch, outside in the sunshine.
  • Next, under the Great Western Road Bridge and , staying close to the river we encountered some interesting architecture, remains of a 19th century Flint Mill, an iron bridge and the wooden Ha’penny Bridge. We crossed the latter to take us into Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens and the restored Kibble Palace. We passed through the Gardens and on to the Great Western Road where the tour concluded.
