Yes, Glasgow may live in Edinburgh's shadow when it comes to tourism, but it would certainly be a mistake to ignore this city! Filled with wonderful museums, a treasure trove of grandiose Victorian architecture, a cool music scene and restaurants at the top of their game - there is plenty going on!

What's more, Glasgow is just a stone's throw away from the shores of the beautiful Loch Lomond. Picturesque villages and mesmerising scenery awaits.
