There are 34 allotment sites in Glasgow City. These sites can be found across all areas of the City. They are listed in the Table of Sites under three areas: the North Western, the North Eastern and the Southern parts of the City. In total they cover just over 32 hectares (80 acres) which is roughly the size of Kelvingrove Park.
Most of the sites are owned by Glasgow City Council but some are privately owned (marked in the Table of Sites with a P). Each site, whether it is owned by the GCC or privately owned, is run by its own committee and the secretary of the committee can be contacted via the e-mail addresses given for each site. The table also gives links to allotment association websites where these exist and tells you which can be accessed through facebook.
To Apply for a Plot;
In the first instance you need to apply to the secretary of site’s Allotment Association (see Table of Sites above) giving your own contact details. You can apply to as many Allotment Associations as you like and ask to join their waiting lists. Once you reach the top of the list they will let you know. They will invite you to come and look at what plots are available. (see New Plotholders )
Allotment Open Days
Many sites hold an open day during the late spring and summer. You will find the dates of those open days we know about on the page Events
