I agree with the other reviews. This once was a bit of a landmark place but now it's just dark, depressing, shops and takeaway shops under the huge bridges of Central station. Don't bother going out of your way for this. Do not recommend at...More

I love Glasgow, but I wouldn't say that this is a city attraction, a person usually walks quickly though the dank and smelly tunnel as fast as possible while trying to hold your breath at the same time. There are many beautiful buildings and places...More

This is under the railway train line at Glasgow Central. It is just a tunnel and, at one end, hotels such as the Raddisson Blue and Wetherspoons pub. At the other end, you are walking towards Glasgow City Centre and the pedestrian area of Buchanan...More

This is the bridge at Glasgow Central Station built around 1900 and was the place where highlanders would meet and converse , share information on jobs etc. There was no internet then not like today. So this was where people met. A bit run down...More

I love Glasgow! But give this a miss. The shops were on the whole uninteresting. Down-and-outs were lying on blankets on the pavement in the middle of the day, and the place smelled of diesel fumes. It saddens me to be negative about one of...More

Even on a warm sunny day this was still dark, depressing and smelly from all the diesel fumes from all the buses that go through it - even the Glasgow Tour bus goes through, but I do not know what it is that they point...More

This is not a tourist attraction. It is a dank and dingy space under the railway station. Back in the 19th century it was used by displaced and subsequently homeless highlanders. today it is still popular amongst the homeless.

Not the landmark it used to be, filthy, neglected and very poor shops and stinks. Lots of street people hanging around so didn't feel very safe.

This beautiful landmark is ruined by the shop near it, the place is really crowded and smells bad. It’s really scary at night. I wouldn’t recommend it.

This is a historic place and had beautiful architecture but is ruined by the ugly cheep shops and the uncontrollable gangs of teenagers that roam under the bridge and around McDonalds. More needs to be done to bring this place up and drive away the...More
