Scotland, Europe

scotland accommodation guide

Glasgow doesn't have the looks of Edinburgh, but then, its people are far friendlier and down to earth. Come here, and you'll be rewarded with world class museums that won't cost you a penny to enter – including the brand new and award winning Transport Museum, the Burrell Collection and Kelvingrove. Glasgow is the most cosmopolitan city in Scotland, and has the best and most cutting-edge nightlife and liveliest restaurant scene in the country. There's always been a great cultural and sporting scene in Glasgow – including the intense Old Firm games between Rangers and Celtic, the most passionately contested derbies in the world. In the run up to the Commonwealth Games, the city is excelling itself with festivals, performances and other events – now is a great time to visit.

Glasgow Holidays Guide

Glasgow is a sprawling city. The West End is a good place to start. Spend the day visiting the gothic quadrangles of Glasgow University and visiting the museums, stop for lunch on busy Byres Road and spend the night in Ashton Lane. If you're lucky enough to visit on a sunny day, then do what the locals do and have a bottle of IrnBru in the Botanic Gardens. In the city centre, see the kinetic sculptures in Trongate 103, take a tour of the opulent City Chambers, have a Greggs sausage roll for lunch in George Square and splurge on dinner and drinks in the Merchant City, Glasgow's glitziest night-time district.
