The City
At the heart of Scotland, Glasgow is undoubtedly one of Europe’s most dynamic cities: steeped in culture, rich in history, with its elegant streets, squares, parks and gardens.

Glasgow has the finest civic arts collection in the UK, including the works of Botticelli, Degas, Van Gogh and Rembrandt to whet your appetite.  There are 27 museums in the city and all are free to visitors.

Glasgow was the first UK city to be a Cultural Capital of Europe and is home to Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.


As Scotland’s cultural and shopping capital, Glasgow benefits from a vibrant city centre with over 800 restaurant and bars.

Glasgow International Airport has direct flights from Europe, the Middle East and North America and has frequent connections to the international hubs of Heathrow, Gatwick and Amsterdam Schipol.  Edinburgh Airport is also easily accessible by public transport.  Glasgow Prestwick Airport is approximately 45-minutes from the city and offers a range of low cost flight options from Europe.  

There is a comprehensive public transport network around the city.

Scotland
Take time to sample the magic of Scotland.  Just 35 minutes from the city centre you will find yourself in the heart of some of Scotland’s most breathtaking scenery.  Explore ancient castles, quaint distilleries, lochs and glens and miles of unspoilt coastline.

For the more energetic there are superb sailing waters and famous salmon and trout rivers to fish.

And of course, there’s golf.  The world-renowned championship courses St Andrews – “the home of the golf”, Muirfield, Turnberry, Royal Troon and Loch Lomond are on your doorstep.
