Glasgow is Scotland’s biggest city, as such it is a rich source of history and culture, steeped in the industrial and mercantile heritage of Scotland. If Edinburgh is Scotland’s brain – its seat of political power – Glasgow is Scotland’s legs and its stomach – powering the country for centuries with industry and trade. Glasgow is an architecture buff’s dream location – especially in the city’s Merchant City district. Glasgow is also the foodie capital of Scotland, offering plenty of delectable dishes and restaurants that allow visitors to get a real taste for Scotland.
