“Great shopping - lots of shops in walking distance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

We enjoyed shopping on Buchanan Street. There are lots of shops there and all within easy walking distance. There are also some other stores within easy walking distance that are more unique to Scotland.

“A Vibrant Street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

This shopping street is the main activities in Glasgow. It has many luxury shops, department stores, souvernir shops, restaurants/cafes and located near the Central Station. Main festivals and events in Glasgow always in this area.

“Great shopping destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Brilliant place for shopping! Lots of shops with a great mix between big names and smaller, unique shops. Plenty of places to eat. Easy to access via the buses or the subway. Better than the main shopping street in Edinburgh (Princes street).

“Walking tour and shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Cigarette smoke bothersome if you have allergies or asthma, but it's a lovely outdoor plaza experience with trees and flowers throughout. Cigarette disposals liberally placed, which makes for a clean walking experience. Plenty of shops and variety of restaurants and cafes. Buskers add to the experience. Very enjoyable walk.
