2 Days in Holiday Inn Theatre Land West end

Hi

please can someone help me organise my 2 days in Glasgow. We arrive about lunch time on Wednesday and have tickets for HOHO bus so thought we would do that straight away. Where could you suggest us getting off to have a wonder about? We want to be back at hotel by 5pm so we can change and go out for a few drinks and a meal. Where is lively on a wed and Thurs night near our hotel? Is Merchant City buzzing during the week? Wanted a lively bar/pub for both nights in evening.

On Thursday we planning to go Loch Lomond shores and get back for about 5pm again. Is this place worth a visit to give us a different more rural experience. I was planning booking theatre tickets for Thurs but can only find Calamity Jane playing that we might find ok...really wanted the theatre experience while we are here.

Any ideas and thoughts on the above plan?

Also any ideas for breakfast walking distance from here?

Thank you that's so helpful. When we get to Loch Lomond is there a visitors centre to arrange a tour or are you left to your own devices? What part is worth visiting e.g. boat trip or any trail walks? WE only have about 4 hours there.

Balloch Is the small town that is on the river that leads into the Loch approx half a mile away.

Across from the station there is a small tourist office and a landing stage where you could take a 1 hour cruise from as little as around £6.

You could also walk along the sides of the river which opens out to the Loch and the stunning hills and scenery beyond.

If you only have a short time in Scotland then Loch Lomond is a great place to sample some Highland scenery so close to to Glasgow, let's hope the weather holds out for you.
