The "Armadillo" (Part of the Scottish Exhibition Centre) and Moat House Hotel on the River Clyde

Generally a working town, Glasgow is the heart of Scotland's shipping industry and is generally not as well suited to tourists as Edinburgh.

Getting Around

Distances can be quite large in Glasgow so it is recommended you use the fairly good bus service or, if you are travelling centrally, use the rather small, but adequate, subway service.

The Burrell Collection

A building created especially to house this collection donated by one individual. A surprising variety of paintings and pottery, there is something here for everyone. A short distance from the town centre and located in the middle of a park. Beautiful.

Kelvingrove Museum

Just recently re-opened after a multi million pound refurbishment this small museum and art gallery (!) is definitely worth a visit. Be aware that it can get very busy on a weekend. Admission is free.
