Glasgow Botanic Gardens, Scotland, UK

They say the best camera is the one you have with you. Our visit to Glasgow Botanic Gardens in May was an unexpected one and as such we had only our trusty iPhones to photograph with. 

Glasgow Botanic Garden is situated in the West End of the city off the Great Western Road. It features a wealth of glasshouse structures including the grand Victorian glasshouse known as Kibble Palace.

Our favourite area of the gardens is known as the Main Range Glasshouses. Built of teak rather than the traditional steel of the Victorian Glasshouses, they had a true 70's feel due to the colours of greens, browns and terracotta. We loved the 'Succulent House', an area dedicated entirely to cacti and succulents. 

We spent a couple of hours here wandering through the glasshouses. The rooms open up as you walk through and are much bigger than they appear from the outside.

The gardens are free to enter and so definitely worth stopping by if you are visiting this glorious city!
