Duchess of Montrose Memorial Garden

8 Aboukir Street, Glasgow G51 4QX
Agnes Bowie
A delightful and peaceful new garden created from the derelict site of a former shipyard. The garden is in memory of the late Cathy, Duchess of Montrose, who was first President of the Preshal Trust Charity. Security fencings have become living walls of colour and lovely mixed planting abounds giving colour all year round. There is a rare maple tree, as Cathy was Canadian, with sensory planting around it, a vegetable garden and tiny tots play area. The Preshal Trust provides a unique service helping vulnerable people and families in the Community. The garden has provided huge therapeutic benefits for everyone who has visited it.

Directions: From the north, head south through Clyde Tunnel, take exit immediately at end of the tunnel signposted Govan; turn left past Cressy Street, then Aboukir Street is next on left. Coming from the south, pass BAE systems on Govan Road opposite Elder Park, then go round traffic light controlled roundabout taking the last exit to Aboukir Street.
