“History”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

This is the area underneath Glasgow Central Train Station. It is historically where the folks from the Highlands used to shelter from the Glasgow rain. It's not really much to look at only has some shops underneath, but the architecture either end of the umbrella is lovely. Also easy to get to as in centre of Glasgow.

“Avoid”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

A dark cavern that usually stinks of fried fish, has crummy shops. The best thing about it is the entrance to Central Station - avoid.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

After reading other reviews i had to give my opinion , this is main street in Argyle strret and is really busy so its bound to be a bit cluttered , i ll bet these winjers have sheltered under it when our weather is bad.

“It's a joke”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

The name given to the Glasgow central Station because it was where highlanders coming to Glasgow for work would shelter in the old days.

“Dull and drab.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

Very dull and smelly. The shops had facelift a few years ago, but it didn't make much difference.
