Where, Dunblane or something? Is that near Glagow?It's where we produced Lord Andy of Murray.
Sign me up.If you've never seen sectarian violence combined with football (soccer) violence, Glasgow is perfect for that.
Sign me up for that too.It's good for deep fried mars bars!!!!!!!
What is C19th architecture?I like Glasgow. A great northern British city with some excellent C19th architecture
Now we're talking. What is it, where is it, how far is it, how do I get there, etc? Got 72 hours in Glasgow, but I've never been to Scotland before and I'd love to see more than just C19th architecture and soccer fans throwing deep fried mars bars at each other.Some of Europe's greatest scenery lies close by.

Sounds good. Thanks!It is my belief that children are usually always welcome in pubs. She can have juice or a soft drink. Pubs are always a great place to meet the locals and they'll be just as interested in you as you are in them! Have fun!
I appreciate it. I am very interested in seeing some of the famous Scotland scenery if it's close enough as the other poster indicated.On behalf of all Weegies.....Thanks lads.
Glasgow's alright, best night out in scotland-you can e-mail me if you want to know anything about Glasgow/Dundee/aberdeen
I like this post.Very interested in this thread.... Say more about Glasgow please, good and/or bad.
As one might guess from the context, elsewhere in Europe is not an option. It's not like I chose it over Paris, Rome, Amsterdam, London, etc. "Forget Venice -- I want my daughter to see Glasgow, Scotland!"If it is just you and your daughter, I'd go elsewhere in Europe.
And, as it turns out, Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits. Literally five minutes after I posted last in this thread, I turned on my TV to the music station and the second song that came on had him singing a song that mentioned Glasgow and the bio on-screen said he hailed from there.Glasgow gave the world Belle and Sebastian.
Thanks, sounds good.OP,
my friend visited it during Christmas and she had a wonderful time though yeah too much drinking.But I'm sure you will find plenty of things to do with your daughter there that won't involve any alcohol.And yes in most of Europe children can come in,though not drink alcohol(under 14-16 at least).
[size=+1]ABOUT GLASS COW:[/size]Whichever you prefer. I'm happy to learn about Glasgow, Montana as well. Even Hannah, Montana.
And my family home...is one of the towns next to Motherwell. My best mate's from Motherwell...They don't really eat them there either..in reality.According to a friend, deep fried Mars bars are a speciality of Motherwell rather than Glasgow. But he is from Glasgow.
Yes, you do.I really hate to ruin this for everybody....but we don't really eat these...Ever.
Yes, you do.
So Jonnyf or others: it seems like Loch Ness and Aberdeen and Inverness are all a couple of hours from Glasgow, and probably too far for us. Is there any of the famous Highland type Scottish scenery within an hour or less of Glasgow? Or maybe the coast?
Damn, you've caught me. I'm just going to go get a deep fried mars bar, some ginger and a bucky.Denial. Just denial.
We haven't touched on bucky. It seems almost a shame, particularly as Rab C. hisself has featured in this thread.Em, you can certainly see some costal areas- Troon for example, or scenic areas-pretty much anywhere..within an hour or 2 of Glasgow, where would you be flying to...Glasgow airport or prestwick? If it's prestwick..then you're actually on the coast at troon already.
You should try find your way to the uber gray city where I currently preside...it's amazing :|

What's good about it?You can get to Dundee by bus from Glasgow. And that's a good thing.
What is your city?
I will be flying into Glasgow. So what specific gorgeous scenery or pretty coastal town is within one hour of Glasgow? What is best of the best that is close by?
What's good about it?
