It's worth following the pedestrianised shopping streets of Glasgow from Sauciehall Street (going west to east) to the top of Buchanan Street running north/south.

This street has a buzz about it. Full of shops etc. but look up at the beautiful buildings, often missed by visitors. A street you could spend hours on.

Buchanan Street is hoist to some of the top fashion names. The street is long and the apart from some road crossing its entirly closed off to vehicles. As well as all the shops you will find lots of interesting street preformers from bagpipes to native american music, to jugglers, football stunts, even in the winter months people are out... More
