74-78 Grassmarket, Edinburgh EH1 2JR, UK
We ended our Edinburgh trip, suitably, at The Last Drop, which is in the heart of the Grassmarket. According to our host, The Last Drop is where prisoners would go to get their last drink of whiskey prior to being executed. From grassmarket.net:...

It's exceptionally difficult to recommend just one bar in pub-rich Glasgow, but the Horseshoe wins for friendliness, atmosphere, location and history. This establishment is one of the last remaining "palace pubs" of the early 20th century. The...
Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow G1 3AH, UK
The neo-classical building that houses the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) is its own piece of architectural artwork. The former home of one of Glasgow’s wealthy tobacco lords, it was also a center for business and commercial exchange for more than...
Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow G1, UK
Glaswegians’ sense of play and unpretentious humor are on display at the Gallery of Modern Art. See how the head of a classical equestrian statue of Wellington is crowned with a neon traffic cone. The story goes that some art students faithfully...

Glasgow is an architecture-buff’s dream, with beautiful 19th-century Victorian, Gothic, and Art Nouveau, and Neo-Classical buildings scattered throughout the city. Many of these are best appreciated on foot—including Glasgow City Chambers, in the...

While St. Kentigern (alternatively called St. Mungo)—Glasgow’s 7th-century patron saint—may well be mythical, early Roman Catholics venerated his memory and started a cult on the hillside site where they believe he worshipped....

My boyfriend and I are scotch drinkers so we absolutely had to find the best bar to sample great scotch while we were in Glasgow. After a little research we found this bar. First we went and had dinner at a nearby spot where we had great food...

Scottish grub was never really about the famed haggis or deep-fried mars bars, and although you can still search these treats out today’s chefs have re-invented the old and familiar. In the city’s west end, Cafézique is a best kept secret. The...

Right in the heart of Glasgow's up and coming Finnieston, Ox and Finch is a trendy, high-ceilinged venue with a casual vibe, offering creative and contemporary tapas-style dishes. Definitely one of Glasgow's most inventive, refreshing tables at...
164 Buchanan St, Glasgow G1 2LW, UK
“Let’s have a Greggs!” This refrain is certainly something you may overhear while roaming the rather handsome streets of Glasgow. Is Greggs a chain? Yes. Does Greggs have a rather ubiquitous presence? Certainly. Did somehow I find myself back...

The Scottish penchant for fried food is well known, but Glasgow's best cooked breakfasts are growing ever more sophisticated. A case in point is Gusto and Relish in the city's southside which uses only the best quality ingredients from local...

You most likely won't find possessions to treasure at this legendary weekend flea market. Indeed, most of the items for sale can be safely filed in the category marked "tat". Nevertheless, the market -- which has been in existence since the early...

No matter which path you walk in the Victorian 85-acre Kelvingrove Park, you’ll find yourself in a lovely setting. The Stewart Memorial Fountain, built in the early 1870s, only comes on a few minutes sporadically throughout the day, but it’s worth...
