City of Glasgow Vacations

Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland, is located on the banks of River Clyde in the West Central Lowlands. Voted one of the friendliest cities in the world and declared a UNESCO City of Music, the city is celebrated for its hospitality, art and culture. George Square, named after King George III, crowns the city center, with the 230-ft high Town Hall Tower in its center surrounded by immaculately preserved statues and monuments. A few minutes' walk from George Square will take you to the best-kept jewel in the region’s crown, the spectacular Glasgow Cathedral. Scotland’s cultural heart is home to over 20 museums and art galleries, the most notable being the astonishing Riverside Museum, the globally-acclaimed Burrell Collection and the riveting Kelvingrove Art Gallery. Art enthusiasts must also visit The Mackintosh House and Church to get a first-hand look at the mind-blowing artwork of Charles and Margaret Mackintosh. The antiquity of the city is beautifully infused with modernity at the Glasgow City Center and The Style Mile, which provide one of the best shopping experiences with their high-end boutiques and antique selection stores. About 15 miles north-west of the City, you can find the rustic Glengoyne Distillery that produces the finest Single Malt Whiskey in Scotland. Glasgow houses the Botanic Gardens among 90 other parks, where you can go for walking, cycling or simply for devouring the serene beauty. Scotland’s most famous freshwater lake, Loch Lomond is located at a 40-minute drive to the northwest of Glasgow City.
