Glasgow & Clyde Valley

A wonderful mix of architecture, designer shopping and cultural heritage...

This area really does have the best of both worlds, an exciting vibrant city and some of Scotland's most spectacular scenery right on the door step. The city of Glasgow has a wonderful mix of architecture; Victorian red sandstone buildings, Italianate steeples and medieval spires, neo-gothic towers and modern contemporary design.

A growing number of visitors are discovering Glasgow's undoubted charms; the city has a vibrant nightlife, fabulous shopping centre and a first class selection of restaurants, cafes and modern bars. The arts scene here is thriving with over 200 arts organisations, including Scottish Ballet and Scottish Opera being based in the city, additionally there are more than twenty museums and galleries, many of which are free, including the unique Burrell Collection, the contemporary Gallery of Modern Art and Mackintosh House, which is a reconstruction of the work of Charles Renne Mackintosh, famous for his Art Nouveau `Glasgow Style' architecture and design.

Glasgow is surrounded by beautiful countryside, from the rolling hills of the Clyde Valley to the south to the superb walking country of East Dumbartonshire to the north of the city. East Dumbartonshire has a diverse and varied landscape that's ideal for cyclists and walkers; serious walkers will know that the West Highland Way starts here in Milngavie, extending some 95 miles north to Fort William and Ben Nevis via Crainlarich. But for more leisurely walks Mugdock Country Park, set around a stunning loch, offers 750 acres of lovely countryside on the outskirts of Milngavie. A short drive north of the River Clyde takes you to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs.

South Lanarkshire stretches from the city suburbs south to open moorland along the lush Clyde Valley. The Clyde Valley Tourist Route makes its picturesque way to the upper reaches of the River Clyde and the World Heritage Site of New Lanark, a beautifully restored 18th century cotton mill village first built by the famous social reformer Robert Owen. Visitors can use the interactive displays at the award-winning visitor centre and go on rides which bring history back to life. Other historical attractions include The Museum of Scottish Country Life at Kittochside, Bothwell Castle, Hamiltons Chatelherault Country Park and the Leadhills and Warnlockhead Steam Railway.
