I left Glasgow in 1964 and returned this week for a nostalgic visit. I was so sad to find the streets and trains filthy and to see the desperate state of the place. There is no point in developing and restoring landmark buildings if the...More

A little refuge in the heart of Glasglow - small restaurants abound and some statues as well. Worth a visit.

Went to The West End with my partner. It's the place to visit when in Glasgow, loadss of bars, restaurants and shops and it's near the university and has lots of good links to the city centre too.

Was gorgeous weather when we were there, and we enjoyed the space! Its a good idea to find Ashton Lane if you like a hip, craft beer type area.

The yard was very impressive. So many statues, stories, names. The hill was very big and it took us at least 30 minutes to climb up and down. But the view made it totally worth it

The Oran Mor at the top of Byres Road is probably your best bet.
