Although I only had 24 hours in Glasgow, I can say that I'm so ready to come back and see even more. When visiting, the commonwealth games were going on and the city was dressed to a tee in everything Scottish. The culture, the people, the food, and the hospitality were better than I could have every imagined. This city is so vibrant with culture and history but has the modern feel to it. I definitely recommend all travelers to visit this beautiful city.
Glasgow was quiet and laid back city. I had a chance to visit back in 2004 with my previous job, visiting our office there. Last day after work, I got to walk around the city and have a few scotch drinks and some local food. Night life here doesn't come alive til after 11pm, when I was already very sleepy.
People usually come to Scotland to see Edinburgh but if you don't come for a visit to Glasgow then you are really missing out. Edinburgh might be the historical and cultural capital but Glasgow is really where it is happening with the best bars, restaurants and nightlife around. There are plenty of world class museums to visit, parks, country houses and the shopping is second only to that in London.
I preferred Edinburgh to Glasgow in terms of big city Scotland. In Glasgow stroll around the University of Glasgow's grounds, grab a pint in a church at Oran Mor and snag some delicious tapas food at Brutti Ma Buoni.
