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.

We were close to the Botanic Gardens - a must see stop. The walk along the River Kelvin was peaceful. Our hotel was in the West End, as well.

I was living in the area and found it to be excellent. Lots of bars, restaurants, shops and attractions i.e. art galleries and museums. The centre of Glasgow is easy reached by train, subway and buses. Ahston Lane is a place to visit for its cosmopolitan tuch.

Great atmosphere at night with plenty of places to drink and places and eat - all within an area of interesting architecture. Plus the University, Kelvingrove Museum, Macintosh House, etc are a stone throw away.

The bohemian West End of the city is a haven for those looking for quaint cafés, tea rooms, trendy bars, boutiques, upmarket hotels, clubs and restaurants. Set in the backdrop of the magnificent Kelvingrove Park, the West End is home to Glasgow University, fine Victorian architecture as well as bars, restaurants and antique shops. Don't forget to visit Byres Road.... More
