Pollok Country Park is Glasgow's largest park and the only Country Park within Glasgow. In 2006 Pollok County Park was named the best park in Britain and in 2008, it was named the Best Park in Europe. Its extensive woodlands and gardens provide a quiet sanctuary for both visitors and wildlife. The park was originally part of the Old Pollok Estate, which was home to the Maxwell family for over 700 years. In 1966 Mrs Anne Maxwell Macdonald gifted the estate, including Pollok House, to Glasgow Corporation with the condition that it remained a public park. The park also contains the Burrell Collection, a purpose-built building designed to hold the large, eclectic antique and art collection of shipping magnate William Burrell, who donated the collection to the City of Glasgow on his death. Another feature of interest is the award-winning fold of Highland cattle.
Dairsie House, a preparatory school of The Glasgow Academy is conveniently located and the area is well provided with reputable primary and secondary schools. Private schooling is available on the Southside of Glasgow at Hutchesons Grammar School, Craigholme, Belmont House and also at Hamilton College and Fernhill School.
The M77 provides commuter to the City Centre, Glasgow Airport and along with the Southern Orbital provides an excellent connection to the Central Scotland motorway network as well as south towards Ayrshire and Prestwick Airport.
