    Glasgow, the city where Mike lives worth visiting.
    Really, it's a nice transformation from an industrial city into a commercial city.

    Also, for any interested in Mackintosh is a must see.

    I was there some years ago (mainly to watch a soccer game) but what I've seen I liked much.

    They have a really great mall in the center of the city (Buchanan Galleries). It's like s a covered street.
    It is also noteworthy that many buildings in the city are made with a very distinctive red stone. I remember the red brick of Toulouse ...

    Buchanan Street does indeed have a lot of shops. There's another mall at the other end from Buchanan Galleries, St. Enoch's. I live pretty close to both of those.

    Yes, we know St. Enoch, and although the building is quite impressive, I liked the variety of shops of Buchanan.
    A curiosity: why Glasgow's young people usually wear black?
    At least they did in 2008 when I visited, and it caught my attention.
    And the blue eyes of the girls too ;)

    I couldn't comment really. I'm not Glaswegian (or even British). :)

    In Glasgow I recommend the Pollok House.


    The Burrell Collection is located there.

    The truth is that Scotland is a marvel.

    The parts of glasgow I visited were terrible back when I was 12 years old. It was a somewhat bad experience for me though a few miles away (birth place of my dad) greenock is such a beautiful place and scenes which are breathtaking. I managed to visit the shipyards there. I could be wrong here but I'm sure that re-sides by the river clyde.

    I took a peek at the location via google/member card link.

    There seems to be vast open areas just north of Glasgow, is that off limits to building?

    I did my masters from Caledonian and lived near 'Ben Nevis' (Argyle St.)
    Have some good memories of Glasgow :)
