I'll de doing a round trip from Glasgow to Edinburgh somewhere in the next Spring.
I've never been to any of both cities and It seems to me that I don't have any particulary strong reason to choose the train over the bus, and vice versa (time, money, location, etc).
What I'd like to know from you is if any of those itineraries is better than the other in terms of sightseeing.
I'll say it in a different way in case my English is too cryptic: Will I see a nicer Scotland landscape from the bus or from the train, neither or both?
We got tickets! So now we have to find a place to stay and where to park.
(1) Parking: websites suggest Queens Park when Hampden Park has events. Should we take up that suggestion?
(2) B&B: hotels on internet are either fully booked or charging £100s per night. Any thoughts? Any locals know somewhere? Got a spare room? :)
Hope someone can help! Thanks, Steve
Can anyone recommend a nice typical restaurant in center Glasgow?
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 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.
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.
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?
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.

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!
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?
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.
