With weeks of good beer-gardening time already lost to lockdown, next week's reopening of select beer gardens across the country means Scots will be out in force whatever the weather. 

After months of enforced closure, pubs and restaurants will soon have the option to open their outdoor areas to reduced numbers for socially-distanced al fresco dining and drinking.

And although beer gardens have been given the green light to reopen if they can meet social distancing requirements, most will require their patrons to reserve slots in advance.

While some pubs are able to reopen whilst observing social distancing guidelines that remain in force, other smaller venues are forced to remain closed.

In a facebook post addressed to its customers eagerly awaiting news of the garden space reopening, Vodka Wodka of Ashton Lane announced that they have no current plans to do so. The post read: 

"Even with the beer garden, we’re not able to facilitate custom in a safe & socially distanced way (if you’ve ever used our tiny toilets, then you probably understand why!)" 

This means that some of our favourites, including Inn Deep, Jinty McGuinty's and Vodka Wodka are still unable to open their outdoor spaces.

But don't be disheartened, here is a rundown of some of Glasgow's best beer gardens, rooftop bars and outside terraces that are set to reopen on July 6.
