Sherbrooke Castle Hotel, Glasgow
A luxury four-star hotel is housed within this rich red sandstone building, close to the leafy, landscaped gardens of Pollok Country Park. Built in 1896, it’s a classic example of lateVictorian period opulence. The house first became a hotel shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War, during which it fell under the control of the Royal Navy and was used as a training centre.
Since 1945 it has offered luxurious overnight stays for up to 200 guests, and features a lounge bar and restaurant, which uses high-quality local produce to serve up delicious dishes with a contemporary twist.
Cost: Rooms from £175 per night; to book, call 0141 427 4227 or visit sherbrookecastlehotel.com.
