We will be flying into Glasgow on August 26th to begin our honeymoon. We'll be heading up to Loch Lomond first, and we are looking for a great company to use for our transfer from the Airport to our hotel in Loch Lomond. After an overnight flight, we just want to be able to relax on our ride up there and would like to use a reputable company with great prices! Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated! :)
It appears we'll need to take a taxi from Glasgow Queen Street Station, including Minifrosch. What are the rules as to child seats in taxis, and how easy/difficult is it to find a taxi with a child seat (if required)? Thanks!

Hello, I am travelling to Scotland next weekend, and am looking for information about the location of the tenement museum, I am interested in social history. There is also an open museum and a transport museum in Partick.
I am hoping to have a day in the city and would be interested in finding a good pub serving local beer and Scottish food (but not touristy). Are any local VTets in the area?
I was walking in busy Sauchiehall Street, yesterday and came across this weirdly-dressed man entertaining passers-by with his novelty act, he was sitting semi-motionless on what appears to be thin air!
He certainly attracted a lot of attention, many people were filming him on mobile phones, and his cash box contained a tidy pile of coins, I flicked in a £1 coin recognising his ingenuity, at least he was doing something clever to make some money, unlike the usual beggars, squatting on the pavement, clutching an outstretched plastic cup.....
Has anyone seen this act before, it's a new one on me, how does he do it?.....................Benny.
how far and what is the cost of a taxi to ayr travel lodge , thanx
I will visit Scotland June 11 - 25 and would like to fly from Glasgow to Stornoway during the week of June 18 - 22 2013. I see that if you buy tickets online they are nonrefundable, so it would be better to purchase them once I am in the UK, but wondered how filled up they get during that time. Also if any refundable tickets are available. I checked their trip insurance and it seems that there are too many exceptions that would make it useless.
Hi everyone. I am thinking of going to Glasgow in mid-January for two weeks. I have a few questions, though... before I get into that, I just want to note that I have been to Glasgow before, but only in the warmer months. Now on with the questions... 1. How cold can I expect it to be? I am from New York where the winters can be quite cold, snowy, and icy, so I doubt it'll be much cooler than here, but I don't want to be shocked. But... is it going to be too cold for me to walk around? 2. Because it gets darker there so early in the winter... will it be safe for me, a solo female traveler, to be walking around Glasgow's city center after dark? 3. Will there be attractions open? 4. What places do you recommend? What are must-sees?? What things are worth checking out? I'll have two weeks, so I'm hoping there's enough to entertain myself with in winter. I have no problem taking day trips out of Glasgow, but I don't quite understand the public transport there, so nothing too complex, please.
Hello, Is it possible to get to the Thistle Hotel from the Glasgow airport by public transportation or would a taxi be our best bet. There will only be two adults and we each have only one rolling bag. Thank you for your help.
Can anyone tell me which bus company covers the Campbelltown to Glasgow route.
I am arriving in May on a cruise to Glasgow for the day only. We have a few different excursions to pick from. What would be best to see....stay in Glasgow for the day or travel to Loch Lommond and Inveraray Castle? So much to do...so little time.
Hi everyone! I'm taking my wife up to Glasgow in March. It's her 50th! We're staying at the Hotel du Vin and eating there on the Friday. We need to find somewhere to eat with the extended family on the Saturday. There could be just 8 people or there may be 20! I suggested an Indian restaurant. Ideas? My sister-in-law suggested the Art Lovers House but that's a bit of a tradition with my wife's family. The 'Chip? Too expensive for most! Any other ideas in or around Glasgow? Thanks.
Hi everyone My wife's 50th is coming up in March and I'm treating her to a couple of nights in the Hotel du Vin, Glasgow. One of the 'special' experiences that I'm looking into are the seaplane flights from Glasgow to the lochs with dinner at the end of it before being driven home. Can you recommend a company? Is there another 'wow' experience that you would recommend?
I am thinking of a day trip (from Edinburgh) to Glasgow and was not sure what station is best to get off at --Glasgow Central or Queen Street. Also is it worth going to Glasgow for just a day or should we think more about taking a one day bus tour from Edinburgh to the "Loch" areas. Thanks for advice. Losham

Hi, My parents, who are in their 60's, are travelling to Scotland this October. While my father takes a trip to Barra, my mother is going to stay on her own for a couple of days in Glasgow. I'm helping her plan the trip and would like a suggestion for a nice safe neighborhood within a very short walking distance (she doesn't walk a lot) to a few shops/grocery store. It's also a bonus if it's easily accessible by the airport bus (i.e. on the route). Thanks in advance!
Hello, we are travelling on a budget but we would still like to go out and have some drinks in Glasgow. Does anybody know about good happy hours or places with very good value? Maybe a place where students meet with good music and cheap beer... I tried to search myself but did not get good results. There seems to be a driving school named "happy hour" which makes the search difficult... Maybe someone knows from own experience. Thank you and greetings!
Does the RBS still print the 1 pound paper notes? thanks
I will have a Sunday to visit Glasgow soon, and thought about going to see the William Wallace's well and monument in Robroyston. What bus gan get me there from Glasgow city center?
I know this sounds a silly thing to ask but you can walk from Springfield Quay to the SECC, over the bridge, on foot can't you? I know you can cycle over the bridge from looking at google maps but can't tell if there is pavement all the way over too.

I'm visiting Glasgow with friends in May and am interested in finding a hotel and things to do within bus/walking distance of each other. Can any locals help me out? I'm 30 years old from Portland Oregon and like to drink, so I'm looking to stay in the heart of the Good Times. I'm into history and art and would like to see some good local music. Anyone's assistance in telling me the right part of town to stay in and which museums and pubs/music venues to visit would be greatly appreciated. I be there for nearly a week before sojourning to Islay for the Whisky. Yay! If anyone can clue me, specifically, into a clean, nice, moderately priced hotel in the center of the action that would be awesome. Thanks in advance!
Hi, Im writing from Singapore. I have a friend living in Glasgow, who is a migrant and not familiar with getting around there, and not too fluent with the English language. Im trying to help him to find out where he could in Glasgow, get reliable advice and buy a round trip holiday tickets. He is planning to travel Glasgow - BKK - BKK - Glasgow, and may be to include both Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and to Jakarta (Indonesia) too. My deepest appreciation to all who could please direct me/us to talk to somebody or a travel agency who does Asia tours in Glasgow. Thanks a million!
