Updated: 5 days ago

Being a local I am always interested in discovering new places to visit, attractions, restaurants, and more. While visiting Glasgow on a day trip from Edinburgh recently, I came across a few things I couldn't wait to share with you including the Govan Stanes (stones).

Getting To Glasgow

Reaching Glasgow couldn't be easier with direct flights from around the world, trains connecting throughout the UK and there are buses too. I traveled with Scottish Citylink Buses from Edinburgh to Glasgow. The journey is comfortable, one hour long, and at only £10 open return for an adult, why not. If you are traveling throughout Scotland, have you heard about the Scottish Citylink Explorer Pass? Connecting over 200 towns and cities across Scotland, the Explorer Pass is flexible and of great value.

There is a wide range of accommodations throughout Glasgow to suit all budgets, from chain hotels to independent guest houses. Have you heard of Cathedral House? The 19th century, Scottish Baronial-style building has been beautifully converted into a unique hotel. With most rooms having views of either Glasgow Cathedral or the Necropolis. Local to the area? Pop into the bar for a drink /delicious meal or sit in the landscaped beer garden.
