It was nice to visit this area as it was a bit quieter than the main shopping area with more individual shops. Had an excellent coffee and cakes at Nardinis.

Well worth a visit to see the diversity of Glasgow, the university, parks, and museums. It includes a busy shopping area and good restaurants. It is easily accessible by the sweet little subway.

The West end is in walking distance to city center once you build up your stamina and if the weather is cooperative. Otherwise it is easy to catch a bus to the airport or to town if you don't want to spring for a cab. If using the bus, have change in various denominations because the bus drivers don't have change. Consider a day pass if you are returning on the bus from an attraction elsewhere. Otherwise there is an underground subway that circles the city so with a little walking, you can probably get anywhere you want by a combination of buses and subway and perhaps a cab if needed. The Scots are for the most part thin and I am sure it is because they walk everywhere. I didn't have Wellies but when it rains, Wellies can certainly protect your lower leg from getting drenched. There are numerous hotels, B&Bs and restaurants in the area. On weekends it is best to make a reservation to insure a seating, however, if you don't there are small pubs with pub food that can cover you in the interim. A very pleasant area to base oneself in order to explore the area.

My husband and I shared happy times as students in the Byres road area in the sixties and it was great to find the area still lively. "Sunshine on Leith" in the Grosvenor cinema and a few drinks in Jinty McGintiy's bar and we were well happy.
