Travel with Me // a Weekend in Glasgow

Travel with Me // a Weekend in Glasgow, Glasgow, Scotland (B)

After staying in Dundee for two nights as our home base for exploring Abernethy (our namesake) and St. Andrews, we packed up our luggage and hopped on a train to Glasgow, our last stop in Scotland. While planning for this trip, I kept stumbling upon posts and articles that compared Glasgow to Edinburgh, explaining that people usually love Glasgow or Edinburgh but not both. I can definitely see where this is coming from. Glasgow offers a very artsy and creative scene in a large city full of hard-working and independent people. Edinburgh is a showcase of history, castles, and royalty and, while exploring its maze-like (and very clean) streets, you will feel like you are walking back in time as you pass by many classy institutions filled with locals.

I guess I’m just easy to please when I travel to a new place because I loved both cities equally in different ways. I always make sure to “let the city be what it is, not something you want it to be” (quote taken from our friend Thom), so I don’t find myself disappointed in destinations very often. In the descriptions below, I have underlined the attractions, restaurants, and things to do that I suggest adding to your two-day itinerary in Glasgow based on my experience. I hope that you will be able to use this as a little travel guide for your trip! ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
