It's lovely to just wander along Byers Road, checking out all the shops. There is a Waitrose and several bakeries and restaurants. The botanic gardens are lovely for a picnic. Parking is a bit difficult, but there are Pay 'n Display lots in the area.

If you're after the trendy, niche Glasgow then look no further than the West End which is a short subway journey away. It's full of great places to relax, shop, eat and drink - Ashton Lane is always a must.

We took a ferry to Scotland and a bus to Glasgow from Belfast. It was a great trip and Glasgow is fun. Ate at the Drum & Monkey fresh food and the haggis was good.
