Sixty great places to visit in Shropshire
Join us for this travel guide to Glasgow, Scotland as we highlight 20 of the best things to do in Glasgow including visiting distilleries, trendy restaurants, hopping pubs, fascinating museums and more attractions.
This is our second time visiting Glasgow, UK and our city guide is a combination of footage from our visit this year and last year. Glasgow has a thriving food scene (both Scottish food and International) and we give you a thorough food tour as we bite our way around the city.
In terms of major attractions Glasgow (Glaschu) doesn’t have many iconic places to visit as nearby Edinburgh; however, I feel one of the advantages it has over Edinburgh is that the city is more spread out and each neighborhood has a distinct character.
One of our favorite places to visit was the University of Glasgow which has a campus that would make Harry Potter proud. Whether we were visiting breweries or distilleries or having seafood for lunch or dinner we found no shortage of things to do in Glasgow, Scotland.
Now let’s explore Glasgow (Glesga) together!

20 Things to do in Glasgow, Scotland travel guide video transcript:
In today’s video we’re going to be showing you around Glasgow, Scotland. This is a city that we visited last autumn and then again this summer, and on both visits, we ate like kings and queens because it turns out, Glasgow is a great destination for foodies.
Since we never got around to making a travel guide on our first visit, today we’re going to be combining the footage from both of those trips to show you some of the best things to do in Glasgow and also some of the best places to eat and drink it. So let’s get started!
And that’s a wrap for our visit to Glasgow, Scotland. We loved our two visits and we’d gladly return for a 3rd. This is an amazing city for foodies and there are so many great bars, restaurants, breweries, and distilleries to visit.
Also FYI – if you’re already visiting Edinburgh, Glasgow is just a short 50-minute train ride away, and it’s a city with its own unique vibe.
If there are any other fun things to do in Glasgow that you’d like to share with travellers, feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments below. Wishing you happy travels!
This is part of our Travel in Scotland video series showcasing Scottish food, Scottish culture and Scottish cuisine.
We cooperated with Visit Scotland for part of this project.

These are my top five things to do in Aberdeen, Scotland.
Aberdeen is the third largest city in Scotland and is found in the North-East of the country. The two things it is most famous are oil and granite.
1) Newburgh Beach – around twenty minutes drive to the North of Aberdeen, Newburgh Beach is a beautiful sandy beach famous for its seal colony, which is found where the River Ythan meets the sea. As well as the seals, Newburgh Beach also has Europes largest sand dune area, and old world war two defences.
2) Dunnotar Castle – to the south of Aberdeen, just outside of Stonehaven, Dunnotar Castle is found on a rocky headland jutting out into the North Sea. It has played a huge role in Scotland’s history, particularly during the Jacobite rising of the 18th century.
3) The Old Railway Line – starting at Duthie Park in the centre of Aberdeen, and leading 16 miles out of town to Banchory, cycling along the Old Railway Line is the perfect way to spend a day.
4) Crathes Castle – the castle can be reached by either car or by cycling along the old railway line. It is a perfect example of a 16th century Scottish castle, and both the grounds and castle are well worth a visit.
5) Marischal College – this is found right in the centre of Aberdeen and is the second largest granite building in the world. It was originally used by the University of Aberdeen, but was recently renovated and is now used by Aberdeen City Council.

Places to see in ( Nairn – UK )
Nairn is a town and former burgh in the Highland council area of Scotland. Nairn is an ancient fishing port and market town around 16 miles east of Inverness. Nairn was the county town of the wider county of Nairn also known as Nairnshire.
Nairn is now best known as a seaside resort, with two golf courses, award-winning beaches, a community centre/mid-scale arts venue (Nairn Community & Arts Centre), a small theatre (called The Little Theatre) and one small museum, providing information on the local area and incorporating the collection of the former Fishertown museum.
Nairn has an expanse of sand beaches that were used extensively in training exercises for the Normandy landings during World War 2. The beaches around Nairn had landmines planted, during clearance operations in 1945 by 11th Company, Bomb Disposal, Royal engineers. High pressure water jetting was used to displace shingle on top of mines to make clearance easier. Notably during this period two German spies who had been dropped by U-boat in the Moray Firth were arrested at Nairn Railway Station attempting to board a train to Inverness.
The A96 from Inverness to Aberdeen currently passes through Nairn town itself. Fergus Ewing, Scottish National Party MSP for Inverness and Nairn (and before 2011 Inverness East, Nairn and Lochaber), has been canvassing for a Nairn by-pass to be developed. Nairn Improvement Community Enterprise was formed in 2010 as a company limited by guarantee to facilitate the regeneration of Nairn Town Centre and its surrounding areas and membership is open to all residents.
The town also hosts the Nairn International Jazz Festival. Nairn is also the host for the annual Nairn Book & Arts festival which takes place every year in June at the Nairn Community & Arts Centre.

Edinburgh's unique coupling of medieval old town in classical new town each of enormous distinction in its own right has created a city of extraordinary richness and diversity without parallel anywhere else in the world its architecture and historical importance at end were apart and give it a uniqueness that is a consequence of its historic existence as a significant european capital from the renaissance period home to the prestigious university of edinburgh it is widely recognized to have been a major center of thought and learning the particular nature the city's duality is unusual on the one hand on a high ridge is the ancient old town while in contrast and set apart on another site is the 18th century new town the former is on a spectacular site the skyline pierced by the castle the sewing gothic spy of Highland Tollbooth Saint John and the robust nationally symbolic imperial crown spire of st.

Parthenon in Athens intended to commemorate the Scottish servicemen who died in the Napoleonic Wars it was never completed leaving just the 12 columns which can be seen today Nelson's monument

the hub was designed in collaboration by Edinburgh architect Jake LSP Graham and the famous Gothic Revival s Augustus Pugin and constructed between 1842 and 1845 how trouble was historically the main building material used in Edinboro except for the grandest buildings and it continued to be used for tenements well into the nineteenth century however stone is the basic building block of Eden

the high quality of the domestic architecture of this period from as early as the 16th century Building Control was enforced to the Dean of guild a local magistrate for example as a precaution against fire all roofs had deme made of tile or slate from 1621 and in 1674 this was extended to building facades which henceforth had to be in stone by the end of the 19th century the old town had lost much

Giles is contains almost 200 memorials honoring distinguished Scots and remembering Scottish soldiers most of these memorials date from the 19th century in early 20th century st. Giles is also has a notable collection of stained glass windows the topmost trace 3 of the burns window contains a glorious sunburst of love blossoming like a red red rose the burne-jones window depicts the crossing of the Jordan in the upper section and the figures of three old testament heroines in the lower section stained-glass windows have been admired for the utility and beauty since ancient Rome when pieces of coloured glass were assembled into pattern window frames in Europe the art of stained glass reached its height between 1150 and 1500 when magnificent windows were created for the great cathedrals the basic ingredients for making glass are sand and wood ash also called potash the mixture is melted into a liquid which when cooled becomes glass to cover the glass certain powdered metals are added to the mixture while the glass is still molten molten glass can be blown into a sausage shape thin slits on the side before being flattened into a sheet it can also be spun with a pontil iron into a round sheet called a crown a windows pictorial image is created by arranging the different pieces of coloured glass over the design drawn on a piece of board if fine details such as shadows or outlines are required the artist paints them on the glass with black paint to assemble the window pieces of coloured and painted glass are laid out on the design board with the edges of each piece fitted into each shaped strips of lead called games these games are soldered to one another so that the panel is secured when the panel is completed putty is inserted between the glass and the lead came for waterproofing the entire composition is then stabilized with an iron frame called an armature and mounted in the window in 1992 the truly magnificent Oregon occupied a south transept was installed complete with its 4,000 pipes the thistle chapel designed by Robert Lorimer was completed in 1911 it contains stalls for the 16 Knights the sovereign stall and two royal stalls the chapel contains a wealth of detail both religious and heraldic and much of it uniquely Scottish including angels plain bagpipes the order of the Thistle has its roots in the Middle Ages but the present-day order was largely created in 1687 by Kings James the seventh of Scotland the order of the Thistle Scotland's great order of chivalry and membership is considered to be one of the country's highest honors along the sides of the chapel the knight stalls which are kept by lavishly carved canopies with the Helms and crests of the Knights rising above princes street gardens in the heart of Edinburgh city centre were once a lake called nor lock the lock which for centuries had served as a trash dump of Edinburgh was drained in order to improve access from the new town to the old town later the nor lock was transformed into the beautiful princess Street Gardens as a years passed lawns formal flowerbeds specimen trees shrubs statues and monuments were slowly introduced reflecting fashion fancy and the needs of the people with its 24,000 plans the flow clock was painted in 1903 the first in the world for the first 100 years of its existence west princes street gardens was a private amenity of the princes Street proprietors in 1876 this tract was open to the public which had always had access to the eastern gardens the mound a causeway of rubble and Earth from the construction of the new town forms the division between the two gardens flowers are set out in beds that are changed several times a year recreational areas are interspersed among the lawns flowerbeds and groves but it is the combination of that timeless rock with its historic castle the sweeping lawns the fragrance of roses the whispers of the wind and the trees the splashes of colourful flowers the fretwork silhouette in gray of the royal mile above the pervading sense of history all around that is particularly evocative the gardens run along the south side of Princess Street and are divided by the mound East princes street gardens run from the mound to Waverly Bridge and cover some 34,000 square meters the larger West princes street gardens cover 120,000 square meters and extend to the adjacent churches of st. John's and Saint Cuthbert near Lothian Road in the West the Waverley railway station is located in the city centre between Edinburgh Old Town in the new town the valley is breached by the 1897 north bridge a three span iron and steel bridge which passes high above the station's eastern section and Waverly Bridge which by means of ramps affords one of the main entrances to the station the new town developed as a suburban residential area for the nobility in merchants classes the city the Charitable Trusts and the rest of Craddock landowners who promoted the area insisted upon using the finest material since they saw it as an enduring monument it rapidly proved to be attracted to government and drew this element of the city away from the old town the new town would soon become the location of some of the finest public and commercial monuments of the neoclassical revival in Europe Charlotte squares Robert Adams crowning glory and with its classic edifices handsome squares and spacious thoroughfares the epitome of what Robert Burns called the heavenly Hanoverian ISM of Edinburgh Newtown Adam was specifically commissioned to provide a unified scheme of townhouses the regal north and south sides of the square provided with 100 meter long palace frontages their pediment at centerpieces Corinthian pillars and balustrade mirror one another on the skyline crowning sphinxes stand guard over pyramid shaped roofs the whole concept has a thrilling swagger to it even the chimney stacks of a dignified air yet with no sense of extravagance only the north side of the square had been completed by 1792 when Adam died construction with delays due to the war with France continued for almost another quarter of a century but the result as we see it today is almost as he intended except for Robert Reed's monumental domed church now West register house Charlotte squares rightly recognized as a major achievement in European Civic architecture many of the front steps in the square have iron boot scrapers used to remove mud from one's shoes before entering a house and built into the iron railings inverted trumpets in which the Link boys who lighted ones way home could snuff out their torches rather than by rubbing them against the expensive stonework throughout the new town the multitudinous scratch marks from matches used to light these torches can be seen to this day Adams designs included only the facades of the terraces the houses themselves were built in the same way as in the rest of the new town with plots made available to prospective residents or builders who would construct the house the sole difference was that in Charlotte square one of the conditions was that the front wall should be built to conform to Adams elevation the end in rear walls of the terraces were not by Adam and they vary considerably in style adam's designs for Charlotte Square proved to be immensely influential in Edinburgh in 1802 the ground to the north the Queen Street Gardens was laid out as an extension to the new town the second or northern New Town Scotland's new Parliament sits at the foot of Edinburgh famous Royal Mile in front of the spectacular Holyrood Park and Salus berry crags constructed from a mixture of steel oak and granite the complex building has been hailed as one of the most innovative designs in Britain today construction of the building commenced in June 1999 and the members of the Scottish Parliament held their first debate in the new building on September 7th 2004 the formal opening by Queen Elizabeth took place on October 9th 2004 enric miralles the Catalan architect who designed the building died before its completion the tournament is the dominant building form within the conservation area short streets and respect for the topography limits the apparent mass of any one building and creates a fusion between tenements and other building forms this contributes to an appearance of density a close-knit character and cohesive groupings skills are often made larger than they really are by the drama of the topology the narrow and irregular width of plots of land the apparent verticality of much development changing viewing levels and restricted void to solid relationships building lines are not set at predetermined grids and angles but respond to natural features and contours the consequence is that much of the organic character the old town is still retained and building minesweeping along the contours create a sculptural appearance too many streets respect for building lines and Heights are essential and successfully uniting buildings from different periods there are currently 38 conservation areas in Edinboro including the city centre Victorian suburbs and former villages each conservation area has its own unique character and appearance this designation permits the area to demonstrate a commitment to positive action for the safeguarding and enhancement of its character and appearance the conservation area ranks as one of the most important in the United Kingdom in terms of both its architectural and historic interest its significance is reflected in an extensive number of statutorily listed buildings the number of tourists that visit the area its outstanding status and its international recognition as part of the UNESCO designated Edinburgh old and new town World Heritage Site since the 1930s numerous initiatives to restore and rehabilitate the Old Town houses have been undertaken the conservation area includes numerous buildings of outstanding architectural and historic importance and international significance this is reflected in the large number of buildings within the conservation area which are statutorily listed for their Stork importance with around 90 being of national importance although these buildings have individual qualities often exhibit in European or classical influences they possess strong elements of the local character that reinforce the distinctiveness of the conservation area as Edinburgh developed open space around important buildings was enclosed as gardens of her burial grounds the natural features of the glacial landscape also left some areas of the open space that were most difficult to develop this has resulted in many small areas of green open spaces within the dense urban structure that have a wide diversity of character and irregular distribution these now contribute to the overall setting of the buildings and are valuable spaces for wildlife and amenities with its more than 4,500 listed historical buildings in both the old town in the new town Edinboro was included on the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites in 1995
