ABOUT GLASGOW

Glasgow is the most populous city in Scotland, and the third most populous city in the United Kingdom. Some say the city’s size – big enough to be a city, small enough to be a village – is what makes it so unique.

For a city of its size, it has a phenomenally vibrant arts scene and amazing architecture. Its world-class museums and galleries are the canvas for many artistic collaborations – whether it’s Celtic Connections, Glasgow International, or a Play, a Pie and a Pint!

Nightlife is a mix of fabulous cafés, bars, restaurants and cultural offerings. The city is home to Scotland’s national opera, ballet and theater companies and is a UNESCO City of Music.

  • Loch Lomond: mainland Britain’s largest lake and, after Loch Ness, the most famous of Scotland’s lochs, it’s only 20 km away from Glasgow.
