Our tour of Scotland’s largest city takes us around all the Historic sights Glasgow has to offer including stunning Victorian Architecture, Art Galleries, and Museums not to mention the magnificent 13th century Glasgow Cathedral and Necropolis Cemetery.During our tour we visit Glasgow University, Scotland’s second oldest university founded in 1451 and the Glasgow School of Art a master-piece of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. George Square is known as the heart of the city and has more statues than any other square in Scotland. Sir Walter Scott, Robert Burns and Queen Victoria are just some of the honoured figures in the square which is dominated by the 18th century City Chambers built in an Italian Renaissance-style. The city also has an abundance of excellent eateries to enjoy serving traditional Scottish food, so why not try our Haggis, Neeps, and Tatties accompanied with one of your favourite Scotch whisky’s.Leaving the city we head west along the Clydeside to Greenock and the end of what we hope has been a memorable day with us at About Scotland.
