I’ve picked out the city’s main draw cards, which include a series of award-winning museums, galleries and a treasure trove of Charles Rennie Mackintosh affiliated things to do. Barcelona has Gaudi, London has Wren and Glasgow has Mackintosh, so I’d advise checking out at least one of his design masterpieces when in the city.
I’ve also opted for some traditional Scottish fayre, including a tick-list of miniature Glens, lochs, boat trips and whisky tastings. Scotland’s capital Edinburgh may take the shortbread biscuit for tartan towels and kilted bagpipers, but Glasgow has a world famous, and more enviable landscape, right on its doorstep. It would be a travesty to miss it.
My list is intended to be a starting point for discovery rather than a definitive list.
