This is a directory of places where you can experience the language and culture of beautiful Scotland.

Let's go!

Italian - Scozia

Kelvingrove Museum

- Glasgow

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum has one of the finest collections of arms and armour in the world and a vast natural history collection.

The art collection includes many outstanding European artworks.

There is a popular myth that the building was accidentally built back-to-front, and the architect jumped from one of the towers in despair, when he realised his mistake.

Merchant City

- Glasgow

The area now known as 'Merchant City' was developed from the 1750s onwards.

As Glasgow expanded in the 19th century, the area became a working district of warehouses and home to the city's central fruit, vegetable and cheese markets.

The name 'Merchant City' was coined during its regeneration. Historically the area was called 'Trongate', 'the tron' or simply by most Glaswegians 'the toun'.

Pollok Country Park

- Glasgow

The park was originally part of the Old Pollok Estate, which was home to the Maxwell family for over 700 years.

The park 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.
