While we live just outside Edinburgh and Princes Street is where my wife and I do most of our shopping whenever in the city I have to say that Buchanan Street in Glasgow has a lot going for it. While it might not have an inspiring world famous view on one side of it, the fact that there are many... More

Nothing much out of the ordinary I'm afraid, except The Apple Shop and the shopping centre near the bottom of the street. Glasgow has some good quirky shops in the Byres Road area, but this is just the usual stuff.

Surely one of the best shopping streets in the U.K. Caters for every kind of shopper. Also remember to go into the Argyll Arcade for great jewellery shops.

There is a certain buzz in Buchanan Street that you don't get in any other street. Believe me as a mere man who has spent hundreds of hours hanging about outside/inside shops in London, New York, all over Spain etc , oh and Edinburgh of course, there's nothing to beat our own Buchanan Street for variety, my wife's words, and...

This is one of the greatest streets in Scotland it has something for everyone, great shops, terrific restaurants, first class shopping malls, and some decent pubs off the main thoroughfare, an essential ingredient to what makes a good street great.
