With its architectural and unusual creativity, the industrial city of Glasgow has nothing to envy of its conventional sister, Edinburgh. Cultural capital on the edge of the River Clyde, the Scottish metropolis is constantly evolving, and becoming more and more trendy every year!
The most populous city in Scotland, Glasgow is seen as a new fashionable destination for design-lovers, mixing avant-garde with Scottish modernism, whose roots date back to the nineteenth century.
The city is synonymous with Charles Rennie Mackintosh. A Scottish architect and designer who designed many of the city’s notable buildings such as Glasgow School of Art, Scotland Street School Museum and the Willow Tea Rooms.
Designated European Capital of Culture in 1990, Glasgow has a wide range of cultural activities and a large selection of museums, art galleries and theatres. A thriving music scene, the city is home to orchestras, ensembles and bands, as well as world class live music venues, pubs and clubs.
It is also an excellent starting point for many one or multi-day tours to the Scottish Highlands and the Lochs.
