I passed through this street almost every day during my stay in Glasgow, since I stayed only few minutes walk from Mark &Spencer...along this street you can find all you need..from cheap to luxurious things..depend on how much money you have in your pocket..our favorite restaurant is Chao Praya, a Thai restaurant, few steps from Buchanan station..
