From the best brunch spots, to the coolest shopping areas and some great activities too, here are the top things to do in Glasgow, perfect for first timers to the city!
Helloooo my wee pals! I’ve just returned from my first proper trip to Glasgow. While I’m sure a few more of you have been to Edinburgh rather than the big G, I loved it, and I promise I’m not just saying that. If I were to describe it in two words, I’d say it was surprising and underrated.
The biggest surprise… how beautiful Glasgow is! I marvelled at the stunning Victorian architecture, medieval cathedral and broad shopping streets. I snapped endless photos of works by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Scotland’s most celebrated architect and designer of the 20th century. I captured blue skies and epic views of the city from both The Lighthouse and the Glasgow Necropolis. And as for the fairy lights? I don’t think I’ve seen a city use so many strings of twinkly lights. It was so magical at night! So budge over Edinburgh, it’s time to put Glasgow in the limelight.
