“Top spot in Glasgow.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

The wife wanted to see the famous west end and I was a bit unsure thinking there would be nothing to do but when we got there I really liked it. Loads of little cafes and restaurants and my son found a great ice cream place. Nice buildings and a very good atmosphere.

Lots to do, near the Botanical Gardens, some great restaurants, and near the Kelvingrove Park as well.

“Something for everyone in every season”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

The West End of Glasgow.. what's not to like??

This beautiful little spot in Scotland's vibrant city has everything you need from gorgeous cafes to sip your coffee, ice cream parlours, a fantastic range of seriously good restaurants, cocktail bars, pubs, late night brasseries, boutique jewellers and gift shops, local grocers, butchers, cheesemongers, ..... not to mention the truly breathtaking architecture!

You haven't experienced Glasgow until you've been to the West End.

“Buzzing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Lots of interesting little lanes with great pubs, restaurants and shops. Very buzzy atmosphere as full of students. Byres Road itself has seen better days - not so many quirky little shops - but check out Nancy Smilie's in Cresswell Lane.
