When Blythswood Square was constructed in the Georgian area it was meant to be the new centre of the city. That didn't happen, but the elegant square is just a stone's throw from the thick of the action. Its centrepiece is Blythswood Square Hotel, which exudes period class in everything from its patterned marble floors to the wooden panelling throughout. The hotel's crowning glory is its excellent fine-dining restaurant, which is situated in the ballroom and comes complete with a zinc-topped bar and Harris Tweed banquettes. Don't miss the imaginative desserts.
