Highland Cows at Pollok Country Park

Today, mindful that the current harsh winter conditions may be coming to end, I visited the 360 acre, Pollok Country Park in Glasgow.

At Pollok Country Park can be found:

  • Small herds of Highland Cows.
  • Clydesdale horses.
  • Woodland.
  • Sporting facilities.
  • Pollok House, a late 18th century mansion.
  • Connections with the Maxwell family dating back 700 years.
  • White Cart Water (river).
