    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    If you believe the press, Glasgow, is the leaner side of Scotland, the rough to Edinburgh’s smooth.Glasgow has a far more industrial history,and is a city once dominated by the shipyards.

    Much of Glasgow's reputation as a violent city is down to one book,No Mean City, written in 1935 and an image the city has never quite been able to shake off, although the Gorbals area it was set in has been almost completely torn down and rebuilt.

    The outskirts are mainly housing schemes,and distinctly working class, built just after the war, but city centre is a haven of pretty Victorian architecture, with the Merchant City area transformed over the past 20 years.Home to a bubbling art and music scene and impressively affordable.The famous King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut venue, a tiny capacity rock club,hosts many big-name acts,has a reputation that stretches across the UK,and even has its own branded beer and vodka.

    Glasgow was one of the first cities in the world to attempt to rebrand itself,into a tourist destination,launching the Glasgow's Miles Better campaign in 1983.

    Make the most of the traditional Scottish welcome (despite their rep, Glaswegians are undeniably friendly)to sample the astonishing local cuisine, which includes haggis and Scotland’s 'Other National Drink' Irn Bru.

    Highlights of the city include the 13th century cathedral , and the haunting Necropolis,and it's oldest building Provand's Lordship, nearby. The People's Palace & Glasgow Green.

    Glasgow museums are free to enter, with the main ones being Kelvingrove, Burrell Collection, Gallery Of Modern Art and the new Transport Museum. also the birthplace of architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, whose work can be seen throughout the city, with a collection the ' House Of An Art Lover' at Bellahouston Park.

    Football plays a major part in Glasgow life, with Scotland's two biggest teams, Rangers and Celtic,based in the city. Games between the two can sometimes spill over after the match.

    As well as a destination in its own right, Glasgow is a great gateway to the west of Scotland, and Loch Lomand easily doable. There are plenty of impressive castles in the surrounding countryside. Also easy to visit the local distilleries at Auchentoshan & Glengoyne.

    The city’s bad rep, if anything, makes the locals only more eager to please.Glasgow may fall well behind Edinburgh on your list of ‘must see’ Scottish destinations, but probably shouldn’t.
