There is such a buzz round Glasgow just now. There are buskers on Buchanan st, fantastic young lads singing, bag pipe players, statues and much more. Shopping in Buchanan st is a must if your in Glasgow. With Frasers, princes square and Buchanan galleries.

If you want the latest trends and are prepared to pay through the nose, then the 'style mile' as the signs call it is for you.

This was a fun experience. Could get everything we might want here. Has high end stores and more reasonably priced ones too. Even the "tourist chochkies" were fun to browse through.

Fantastic variety of shops, all in the one street. You are sure to find what you want here! Particularly love the Nike shop. There's nothing I dislike about Buchanan street
