My wife really enjoyed her day here last week. We were visiting Scotland for a week and she bought most of her take home gifts for the family and herself along this strip of stores. A lot of people on the street and entertainers all along the way.

This is the style mile of Glascow. Loads and loads of stores from exclusive boutiques to chain stores. Lots of restaurants to choose from. The view from the top of Buchanan street looking down the street is very unique and stunning. A memorable shopping destination.

Our hotel was next to Buchanan Street so naturally we checked it out. It had your typical shopping places like Boots, Scotland souvenirs, and chained department stores. Only food places were Hard Rock (which we found disappointing due to the service) and McDonalds. What made this place was the street performers. There was a wide variety of music and artist....

This amazing cosmopolitan street in the city of Glasgow - not our capital but rivals Edinburgh, steeped in historical tales of our heritage. The street is a mix of the ancient and the new in the marvellous architecture, and the modern shops, restaurants and pubs, with entertainment the entire stretch of the street, interspersed with the humour of the inimitable...

As a Glaswegian visiting my home city after some years living elsewhere I was a bit shocked at the transformation of Buchanan Street. It is too much like other city centre streets in many other places. Same shops, glass fronted monstrosities and the saving grace is hearing all those beautiful Glaswegian accents.

Shops, shops and more shops, all along one street. Spent several hours making my way down and didn't make it to the end after 6 hours. My poor bank balance and my sore feet!

Better than the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, less tourist tack and a positive shopping experience as opposed for example, Oxford Street which I found to be a window gazing exercise, eventually boring, like the Times How to Spend It, for the other one per cent!!!
