A FREE ice rink will open in Shawlands over the festive period.

The rink will be based in Shawlands Square from December 17 to 23.

It has been paid for by businesses in the South Side area via the My Shawlands Business Improvement District Team.

There will be skate hire and stabilisers for kids - and a giant snow globe for photo opportunities.

Shawlands historically had an ice rink in Crossmyloof until it closed in the 80s.
