“A Nice Walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We stopped in Glasgow while driving from Belfast to Edinburgh to stretch our legs and take in some of Glasgow while in Scotland. We walked down through Buchanan Street to see the shops. It was a nice hilly walk with lots to see. We stopped in one of the many pubs for a couple of beer and a couple of the souvenir shops to see the local talent.

“Nice variety of shops, cafes and pubs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Enjoyed our stay close to this hub of shopping. Was very enjoyable to stroll the cobblestone streets up to Buchanan Street, and Saturday afternoon included street performers and entertainment in the sunshine. Love Glasgow!

“Shopaholic :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

if your shopping in Glasgow then you have to visit Buchanan street. Loads of shops and of course Buchanan galleries. Just a stones throw from Buchanan bus station so an ideal starting or finishing point.
