Love the this area. Lots of little places to eat and drink and love a walk in kelvingrove. The cleanliness should be looked at but that's Glasgow wide rather than just a westend problem.

late september we were really luck with the sunny warm weather. Had a walk around the West End. Enjoyed the park, the museum at Kelvingrove & found a perfect place for lunch. Montgomerys.

We were over at Hillhead Library on Friday and Sunday to listen to the authors. On Friday it was "Murder with a smile" with Aline Templeton, Douglas Skelton and Matt Bendoris taking a look at the humorous side of crime and was very enjoyable. Sunday's show was the excellent and very entertaining Chris Brookmyre on his own reading from his... More

Don't go to Glasgow without sampling the West End. Wonderfully interesting and quirky selection of independent shops and restaurants with a very modern and vibrant atmosphere. In fact, every time we visit Glasgow (which is twice a year), we stay in the West End and sample all the restaurants in turn. The "must go" places to eat are usha's Indian... More

So many things to see--has a young vibe due to its proximity to the University--but lots of museums, pubs, arts---something for everyone to see/visit.

The west end of Glasgow has a lot going for it. Mainly the university so is it a bit of a "studenty" area but a very nice area at that. There's a lot of attractions such as the Kelvingrove museum, botanic gardens and the park. There's a lot of independent shops and plenty of bars and restaurants. Unless your in... More

Car parking is a nightmare and day of the week. The area is well served by many bus routes and with Hillhead train subway station in the heart of Byers Road I would suggest using public transport. The Hop on Hop off open top buses btravel through this area. Of course, there are black cabs and private hire taxis. My... More
