Motor sports venues are not as common in Scotland as, say, football arenas, which makes the home of the Glasgow Tigers rather special. The motorcycle team competes select days of the week from April through October, and the motorbike races are especially popular with families. The Tigers trace their lineage back to 1946, where they competed in various venues through the decades before settling it at Ashfield Stadium in 1999. (The site became Peugeot Ashfield Stadium in 2015.) 

Recent visitors raved about the conditions of the facilities, and said it's a hit with kids. 

The speedway is located near the Ashfield train station. Tickets range from 17 pounds (around $22) for adults to 10 pounds (about $13) for students and children 12 to 17. (Kids younger than 12 can attend for free.) The speedway can be reached by train, bus or car, and the Tigers provide detailed directions, and other information, on its website.

#1 The Burrell Collection

Travelers express astonishment at this museum's near pitch-perfection. The Burrell Collection's glass walls not only encase a variety of objects and artworks, but they also usher in the surrounding woodlands. In the collection, donated by the late millionaire Sir William Burrell, you'll find everything from Chinese ceramics to Rodin sculptures to more than 20 Degas paintings. After you've had your fill of the museum, you can wander around the surrounding Pollok Country Park.

Under normal circumstances, the Burrell Collection can be viewed for free. Travelers highly recommend you take advantage of this steal, saying the museum's variety of art and its milieu are beyond compare. However, in 2018, the museum temporarily closed for a major overhaul and is expected to reopen in the spring of 2021. During the renovation, tourists can visit the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, which is hosting a series of free exhibits that highlight different items in the Burrell's collection.
